Imposter syndrome is the bane of many organisation's and individual's existence. It can cripple creativity and innovation as people who suffer from this syndrome doubt their abilities and impact.
It's almost impossible to build tight, high performing teams when imposter syndrome sufferers are worried about feeling like a fraud and inadequacy - the team suffers, as does productivity and performance.
Conquering imposter syndrome is like rocket fueling performance - barriers are smashed and the thirst and desire to achieve can revamp the organisation and the individual.
