It’s a common refrain among working women. “I think I’m going to be found out any day now. I’m a fake; I have no idea what I’m doing!” More than 70% of women suffer from Imposter Syndrome at some point in their careers. The figures for impacted men are much lower.
Whether you’re getting ready for a ski trip, or hoping to see the green shoots of Spring soon, a little time away from your desk could be just what you need to inject some life into your career.
