In the most basic terms, “the confidence gap” refers to differences between women and men; that was from a 2014 story in The Atlantic. I also think it might be a book. I’m not going to discuss the confidence gap along gender lines, per se. Rather, I want to talk about the self-doubt that creeps into all corners of an organization. This is also called the “I am a failure” problem of work, or simply the fear of not being good enough.
