Few way to overcome IS for professional woman:-

2- Despite of saying her unsuccessful work she should focus on the successful work she is doing .
3- She should think that if she had not been working properly, the company would have fired her yet, but they did not do it. This means that her work is not wrong here, it is not right but it is also not so wrong. Is she is doing good .
4- She should keep herself busy throughout the day and while reading the book while sleeping at night, she will not pay attention to all these things and will get free by itself.
