Overcoming Imposter Syndrome by Elizabeth Harrin shares 10 strategies for stopping feeling like a fraud at work.

LONDON, UK, 5 December 2011 – A new ebook for anyone who has ever felt out of place at work is launched today.  Overcoming Imposter Syndrome: Ten Strategies to Stop Feeling Like a Fraud at Work is a new ebook by Elizabeth Harrin that is designed for people who have ever experienced that awkward feeling of not really knowing what they were doing at work.

“Imposter Syndrome is really common,” said Harrin, Director of The Otobos Group. “I’ve spoken to many men and women who have talked about feeling as if they aren’t good enough at work.”

Overcoming Imposter Syndrome explains what Imposter Syndrome is, the symptoms and shares 10 ways to overcome those fraudulent feelings. The book includes stories from men and women who have built their self-confidence, tackled Imposter Syndrome and found their own ways to feel more positive about their performance at work.

“Most of the books about Imposter Syndrome explain the symptoms and the rationale behind why we feel like that,” explains Harrin. “Learning about why we feel like that is important but I wanted to write something practical that would help people make changes to their attitudes and behaviour straightaway, so the book is full of practical tips from me and people I interviewed.”

“I am now 58 and retired,” said one reviewer. “I wish someone had given me a book like yours about 25 years ago. I have learnt all the lessons in it the hard way.”

Overcoming Imposter Syndrome is available in .pdf format online at
