Abstract:  Why do capable people suffer from the impostor syndrome and how can you thrive in spite of it.  Do you chalk your accomplishments as a fluke or “no big deal? Do you think, “If I can do it, anyone can”? Do you feel like you’re just fooling your professors? If so, join the club! Millions of people around the world — from executives to college students and professors to Academy award winners— secretly worry they’re not as bright and capable as other people “think” they are. It’s called the Impostor Syndrome and there is a cure.  Join us for an energetic workshop led by speaker and author, Dr. Valerie Young.
