Can happiness and optimal performance be learned? Positive psychologists say "yes"! As decades of research and hundreds of studies have now shown, people who express their strengths tend to be happier, more resilient, less stressed and are higher achievers. Due to this groundbreaking science, we can help people discover their best qualities, opening up a vital pathway to engagement at work, in relationships, and in life.
All of us have at some point experienced the deflating, condemning voice of our inner critic. Unfortunately, the trap of the “inner critic” often affects individuals, teams and organizations. In this Wisdom Destination™, negative, criticizing self-talk and an unrealistic quest for perfectionism could infect the personal and work lives of multiple people straining important relationships and hindering performance.
Consider a top-performer, who in the quest for perfection is painfully self-critical each time he/she makes a mistake. Is that internal, criticizing voice the key to success? What if there was a better, more sustainable way to bring out the same or an even higher level of excellence? What if the key to unleashing greatness is to silence the inner critic and to discover the inner coach?
Unfortunately, this trap of the “inner critic” often affects individuals, relationships, teams and organizations. Without guidance, most work cultures will tend to follow the lead of their managers, or of those with whom they interact regularly. In this Wisdom Destination™, one person’s negative, criticizing self-talk and unrealistic quest for perfectionism could infect interactions with those she leads at work, and with people in her personal life straining important relationships and hindering performance.
Relax, recharge, and reflect with this zen, positive, Wisdom Destination™ and explore how we can all learn to Silence the Inner Critic and Discover the Inner Coach to show up each day with a new sense of energy, enthusiasm, and engagement!
