Impostor Syndrome Expert

Valerie Young

Valerie was the first to connect the dots between the impact of impostor syndrome on individuals and the subsequent costs to organizations, something she detailed in “The Impostor Phenomenon: Are Impostors Draining Their Companies,” the cover article of the March/April 1986 issue of The Executive Female magazine. Fast forward to today, Dr. Young is an internationally-recognized thought leader. A former manager at a Fortune 200 company herself, Valerie has led Rethinking Impostor Syndrome™ to well over half a million people around the world at such diverse organizations as Google, Pfizer, NASA, the National Cancer Institute, and Oxford University. Her 2011 book, The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women: Why Capable People Suffer from the Impostor Syndrome and How to Thrive in Spite of It is now available in six languages.
