In this week’s episode of the Hello Frances podcast, Shantelle tackles the subject of imposter syndrome, the idea that an individual believes he or she succeeds because of luck and not because of talent or qualifications. Studies show that approximately 70 percent of people experience this at some point in their lives. Shantelle shares her personal experiences in feeling this way and what she does to combat it.
Shantelle shares a few resources that taught her more about this phenomenon, including Valerie Young’s book “Secret Thoughts of Successful Women”. Valerie distinguishes several types of people who experience imposter syndrome and their patterns of behavior. We’d love to talk more with you on your thoughts on imposter syndrome.
