Jo and Steph discuss the ‘Imposter syndrome’ today, the feeling that many people have, even high achievers, that they just got lucky and are not as able as it appears. ‘Imposter syndrome’ is an internal insecurity and a fear that eventually they will be figured out and exposed for who they really are.
