#12 Imposter Syndrome in Young Professionals


Imposter syndrome is a common issue that is showing up in young adults as they enter the workforce. Am I competent enough for this job? What are my skills? Will I be able to do this? Today my summer intern, Meredith Barry and I chat about the reality of imposter syndrome in your early 20’s.

Key takeaways from this episode:

  • Vulnerability is crucial for young professionals to unlock their full potential.
  • It’s ok to make mistakes.
  • It’s easy to play the comparison game with your peers.
  • Remember that everyone has a period of time where their gifts are unknown or undervalued, it takes time to figure out how to give them to your advantage.
  • Self-doubt and fear can take over your mindset. When you’re stuck here, it’s hard to reach your full potential.
  • Cultivating self-confidence is an integral part of personal growth and challenge yourself.
  • There is a way to bring your whole self to work and do something meaningful at all stages of your career.
