Rethinking Impostor Syndrome: How to Feel as Bright and Capable as They “Think” You Are
Take the Quiz:
- Do you chalk your accomplishments up to luck, timing, or computer error?
- Do you believe “If I can do it, anybody can”?
- Do you agonize over even the smallest flaws in your work?
- Are you crushed by even constructive criticism, seeing it as evidence of your ineptness?
- When you do well, do you think “fooled them again”?
- Do you worry that it is just a matter of time before you’re “found out?”
If so, join the club!
Millions of people -- CEOs and entry-level professionals, first year college students to PhDs, artists and engineers -- secretly worry they’re not as smart or talented or qualified as other people “think” they are. It’s called the impostor syndrome. Fortunately, there is a solution.
In this surprisingly upbeat webinar you will discover what impostor syndrome is and where it comes from. As importantly, you’ll walk away with practical, immediately usable strategies to finally feel as bright and capable as you really are.
Dr. Valerie Young an internationally recognized expert on impostor syndrome. She has delivered her solution-oriented session at over 100 colleges and universities in the US, Canada, Japan, the UK, and Europe including MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Meharry Medical College, and Oxford. Valerie has also spoken at such diverse organizations as Google, Boeing, Intel, Facebook, IBM, Dell, Blizzard Entertainment, Rakuten, YUM!

Her award-winning book, The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women: Why Capable People Suffer from the Impostor Syndrome and How to Thrive in Spite of It, published by Crown Business/Random House is now available in six languages. And her career-related tips have been cited in business and popular media outlets around the world including BBC radio, Yahoo Finance, Time, Newsweek, USA Weekend magazine, Science, The Chicago Tribune, The Globe & Mail, Fast Company, The Sydney Morning Herald, O magazine, Psychology Today, and many more.
Valerie earned her doctoral degree in education from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst where she studied internal barriers to women’s occupational achievement. Although her research subjects consisted of a racially diverse group of professional women, much of Valerie’s original findings have proved directly applicable to anyone with impostor feelings. While at the University Valerie was also the founding coordinator of the Social Justice Education program which pioneered what is now popularly known as diversity training.
