You’ve most likely heard of “imposter syndrome” and perhaps you’ve experienced it yourself. If so, you’re not alone!

I hear from women we work with that they sometimes suffer from imposter syndrome, especially as they think about putting themselves out there in a bigger way.

You’re going to learn a lot in my conversation with Melody Wilding, who has an impressive background as a best-selling author, a contributor to places like Harvard Business Review, and a LinkedIn Learning instructor.

Melody and I talk about:

  • What imposter syndrome is
  • The various ways it can show up (one of these surprised me)
  • How imposter syndrome has shown up for both of us
  • Specific techniques we can use to lessen it
  • How Melody was selected to be a LinkedIn Learning instructor and her tips for creating engaging video content
