At some point, most people feel inadequate or anxious in their careers. However, for people with the imposter phenomenon (IP), characterized by a strong internal sense of being a fraud who has fooled others in order to achieve professional goals, those feelings can be overwhelming. This panel will explore what IP is and how to address it in yourself or in your staff. Attendees will also be welcome to share their own experiences and solutions.
