Webinar - How to succeed with your inner critic

Wednesday, 21 October 2020
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
    • Melissa Kidd,, Director, Motem Ltd

Many of us have an inner voice that is telling us we’re not enough – be that clever enough, successful enough, attractive enough.
For some of us, it is so familiar that we believe it’s part of our very fabric and we wouldn’t achieve anything without it.
As such, we rely on it to motivate us and drive us forward but that creates a huge amount of pressure and stress, which can actually erode our capacity to perform at our best. Failure is terrifying
because we take that to mean something bad about our sense of self - our identity.

This session will introduce the idea that there are other ways to motivate yourself which can mean you enjoy your work more and can perform at an even higher level whilst reducing anxiety, stress
and the risk of burnout.

Learning objectives
By the end of this taster session, participants will be able to:

 Describe what an inner critic is
 Recognise the three ways it manifests
 Reflect on where it comes from and why we have it
 Apply a number of different ways to work with it so that over time you change your relationship with it
 Recognise alternative helpful strategies to motivate yourself to perform at your peak
