Olivia Fox works with leaders inside big companies at http://www.spitfireteam.com/ and at lunch the other day she said something very interesting: that students at Stanford were dropping out because they were suffering from impostors' syndrome. In other words, the students thought that they had snuck through the admissions' process.

Worse, she told me, is that companies are seeing innovation stifled because of this syndrome. We talk a little bit about it, but we'll do a longer interview with her soon as she's working with companies like Google and eBay to empower their employees to ship innovations.
