Have you ever asked yourself any of the following questions:

  • “Can I do this?”
  • “Do I deserve this?”
  • “What happens when others find out I don’t know what I’m doing?”

If so, you’re not alone. More than 70% of people (including many great leaders!) have feelings of imposter syndrome.

Alex Dunn, who teaches principles of management, organizational behavior, human resources, and life and career development at UMW, shows others how to recognize, redirect and overcome feelings of imposter syndrome to achieve success.

Her recent workshop – “Do I Deserve This? Recognizing and Using Imposter Syndrome as Fuel for Your Future” – aimed to help participants rise above feelings of inadequacy when applying for, and carrying out, jobs and other opportunities.
