"Just Be yourself" is often prescribed as blanket advice. But, while that sounds easy and straightforward in theory, being authentic at work can feel psychologically unsafe, trigger fear, and result in impostor syndrome for many people when it's not aligned with an organization's culture and professionalism standards. If you can relate, you're not alone.
