You’ve worked hard and hustled, and now you’re finally in a position of leadership. Unfortunately, the current challenges of being a creative professional – managing teams virtually and navigating moving forward in our careers while still working to create outstanding products and services – can be overwhelming.
Despite our best efforts, the inner critic takes over. We feel like an impostor, like we don’t know enough, and like everyone else has figured out how to adapt to these unprecedented times while we’re still trying to get our bearings. The good news is that banishing this Inner Critic enables us to step fully into doing our best work, achieving excellence in our careers, and bringing the best out of others.
In this masterclass, attendees will learn effective methods for overcoming impostor syndrome, perfectionism, burnout, and fear of failure and success that will enable you to fully step into their power and lead with confidence. They will further learn how to recognize, own, and express their strengths and expertise. Finally, attendees will learn to powerfully communicate their ideas as well as become adept listeners to best encourage collaboration and facilitate team dynamics.
The result will be new skills and behaviors that will be applied in the workplace for effective leadership, helping participants achieve excellence – and contribute meaningfully to the world.
