Congratulations! You are part of the silent majority of people who suffer from Imposter Syndrome.

Imposter Syndrome is that sinking feeling you get when you are not convinced that you know what you are doing. It is not a real medical syndrome, but it is a convenient label for that lack of self-confidence we all get from time to time, when you feel as if one day your boss will realize that you just don’t have a handle on your work.

I’ve spoken to hundreds of people about Imposter Syndrome at conferences and when I ask who has ever felt like that, nearly every hand goes up, every time. You don’t have to feel out of your depth at work.

This 100+ page ebook is packed with strategies to help you feel more confident at work, even in difficult situations. It includes a worksheet to help you turn the strategies into action steps specific to you.
