Anyone willing to share some best resources (books, podcasts, etc) for imposture syndrome? For awareness, I am a white women in HR. Always struggled with confidence but experienced some brutal/toxic management with my HR role with a bad business partner (now in a new role), and I am continuing to struggle with my confidence. Appreciate resources that are “self-help”. Also considering a therapist but hoping to also own the process myself for quicker “recovery”. TIA!

Unshakable Self-Confidence by Billy Atwell is a great one suggested to me by a friend after I opened up to them regarding my experience with imposter syndrome. Another one of my favorites that tackles general mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing is After Sunset hosted by Sille Lund and Sissel Boe. It feels like you're just talking to your big sisters. Other than that, good on you for considering therapy. I wish you the best!

Don’t rely on company resources. Find your own. If this is something you struggle with regardless of where you work then it’s worth it to find a therapist out side of company resources. Changing environments may not always be the answer if you move on to another company and still feel this way. Then it’s a deeper issue

I agree with CBA1. While getting resources from other people would be helpful, I think getting the right one based on what you really need is the key.

Anyone knows the chances of location being changed after receiving the offer and getting tagged to a project?

I have not yet accepted the offer.

Hi! I’m a Senior designer (8+years XP) with also a short experience (<2years) in Product management and Team Management.
I’m in a recruitment process for a Product manager position that seems very exciting to me, but the company didn’t give me their salary budget yet. My question is: do you think I can pretend to a senior-level salary given my profile, like I’d do if the position was Product designer? Or should I think of potentially having to downgrade from my current salary?
Thank you all!
