We all have an inner critic, the voice that causes us pain and keeps us from thinking big, speaking up, and going for what we really want. Our inner critic can be exhausting and demoralizing to listen to! Although we might want to tune it out, it can be hard, because it’s so familiar. What if there was a way to lessen the sting of the inner critic and not let it affect us as much?

Your inner critic is not the truth of you. It is just one voice, and a voice that you can shift your attention away from, so that you can feel more motivated, confident, and capable. There are concrete brain strategies that you can practice to lessen your inner critic’s volume and power, and build up your inner wisdom and strength instead.

In this podcast, Leadership Coach Deb Elbaum shares personal and client examples to illustrate the strategies that can lessen the inner critic. If you’re ready for more peace of mind, more confidence in your leadership, and more going for the goals you really want, press the play button now.
