The Impostor Syndrome Cover Page2

Impostor Syndrome is a big topic which can cover a vast domain.
In this book, the focus is primarily on the business world and
how employees and managers at all levels often struggle to find the
defining line between being themselves and being who they believe
others want them to be. Sadly, many end up choosing the latter.

I hope the book generates good dialogue and debate about
how authentic leadership can and does make a difference, both
to individuals and to organisations. It is important that Impostor
Syndrome be normalised, as an important first step to diminishing its
potency. Executives, managers and boards can play a key role in this,
by learning and modelling behaviour that counters the syndrome,
and by creating a positive and open environment where there is no
need for people to feel like impostors. Organisations that create the
conditions for authentic leadership to thrive, can then make it easier
for all employees to bring the ‘whole person’ to work.
