CEO Says Impostor Syndrome Can Be a Useful Tool
Employ it as a reminder that you're not always the smartest person in the room
When the (COVID-19) pandemic isolated nearly everyone at home, our fascination with forebears intensified. That was especially true after COVID-19 felled many older family members, said Deborah Liu, CEO of Ancestry.com.
