On this webpage you will find some extra information on the imposter phenomenon (as you now know, it really isn't a syndrome) which is based on my own research and that of other experts, as well as some other useful links, plus suggestions for TED talks and further reading.
We are still at an early stage in understanding the impact of the Imposter Phenomenon and my interest is in understanding the most effective ways of managing those imposter feelings, in particular in the workplace and passing on this information to others. As I mentioned, I am currently undertaking doctoral research on this topic. If you are interested in keeping up to date with my research findings and musings on the topic, do sign up to receive my occasional newsletter.
Here's a link to the research on IP in the workplace by TotalJobs in 2019, in collaboration with yours truly and my PhD supervisor Dr Terri Simpkin: TotalJobs Survey, and the recent 2020 research to explore the impact of working from home and the lockdown during the current pandemic can be found here.
In addition, here's an interesting blog on the importance of allyship at work . Being an ally could help reduce another person's feelings of imposterism.

On the video tab of this website you'll find a panel discussion on the imposter syndrome with Circle Co. which provides an interesting insight into the imposter at work (filmed prior to Covid 19). I also add blogs and podcasts to the site, so do take a look around.
