Imposter Syndrome is a phenomenon whereby individuals doubt their skills, talents, or qualifications.  They have a persistent fear of being exposed as a “fraud” or “imposter” believing they will be found out to be less competent or qualified than others think they are.  They often attribute their success to external factors rather than their abilities.  Imposter Syndrome is common among attorneys, business owners, and other high-achieving individuals.  By understanding and defeating Imposter Syndrome you will obtain many benefits, including more confidence, greater resilience, and less stress.  Defeating Imposter Syndrome will liberate you from playing it small and empower you to take on greater challenges, as well.  Includes a discussion on how Imposter Syndrome can be triggered due to the work environment and several ways law firms and legal departments can help prevent attorneys from experiencing this phenomenon.
