Career Planning

Impostor Phenomenon

Impostor Phenomenon

Recently, links between imposter phenomenon and career planning have been established. Essentially, those experiencing higher levels of imposter phenomenon are more concerned with staying safe in their current environment, and therefore are not giving much thought towards planning for the future. Because of this present-oriented focus, career planning takes a backseat. Highly competent employees are not pursuing the career moves that could prove extremely beneficial for themselves and for their company. These individuals who have a history of high achievement may be remaining stationary in an organization, rather than moving up to have a stronger influence and contribution.
