Damon Lembi: What is the 3 step approach to dealing with imposter syndrome or self-doubt?
After dedicating the initial 22 years of his life to the pursuit of becoming a Major League Baseball player, Damon Lembi pivoted in 1995 to help his father (Walt Lembi, Founder of Learnit) by investing his heart and soul in Learnit to help individuals gain the knowledge and confidence they need in attaining their professional goals through the value of education. Damon has a deep commitment to the Learnit team past and present and the San Francisco Bay Area community as a whole, where he was born and raised. Damon attributes Learnit’s longevity and success to the ability to surround himself with “A” players and taking advantage of learning / evolving through past mistakes. Outside of Learnit, Damon is an avid reader, moviegoer, and live music fanatic. Most of all, Damon loves spending time with his wife, children—Lucy and Wally, and his dog.
