Either way, you aren’t alone. Highlights: - A definition of imposter syndrome and some of the key signs to look out for in yourself of others - An anecdotal observation about imposter syndrome after speaking with over 1000 contractors and diving deep into their mental and emotional challenges - The surprising reason that an unusually high number of contractors are prone to feeling imposter syndrome and why it might be a sign you’re on the right track - Why you shouldn't block out your negative emotions and how to listen and act on them in a healthy way - 3 Practical steps to manage imposter syndrome if you think you have it - The dangers of trying to mask a lack of confidence by being overly confident Watch the episode on PCA Overdrive https://www.pcaoverdrive.org/videos/the-antidote-for-imposter-syndrome-and-self-doubt PCA Overdrive is free for members.
