Do you feel like your success can all be explained by luck and hard work? Do you feel constant pressure to achieve and cannot let something go until it is perfect? Imposter syndrome and self-doubt are prevalent across all genders and stages of one’s professional career. Learn tools to free up mental space by not carrying the emotional drain of feeling like an imposter and develop compassion for yourself.
