Do you secretly worry others will find out you are not as intelligent and competent as they seem to think you are? Do you often dismiss praise for your accomplishments? Are you crushed by even constructive criticism, taking as evidence of your ineptness? Does the thought of not knowing what you are doing strike fear in your heart? If so, join the club. The Impostor Syndrome is often found among high achievers. Learn to recognize the individual and organizational cost of this phenomenon. Discover how to stop the perfectionism and procrastination that can undermine your success. Presented by Valerie Young, Ed. D.
