Officially helping someone with imposter syndrome

This short article deals with what a mentor should do to mentor someone with imposter syndrome.  Reality has it that quite a few of us out there suffer from this.  The imposter syndrome doesn’t let the person who suffers from it recognize their own success, never believing they deserve what they have, based on their own merit.  It mentions […]

There is a lot to be said about writing an email properly.

There is a lot to be said for writing an email properly.  We have many requests for specialized classes.  Perhaps it is that in English we are much more to the point, however, not direct.  My recommendations: simplify.

Let’s get our conversation started with this video, as yourself these questions previous to watching it:

time.

So – skim through
this article and […]
