So many of the women that I often talk to or work with struggle to tame their inner critic. Those "You're not good enough" thoughts in your head. The fear of being 'found out'

Often these thoughts stop us from doing our best work and making a bigger impact at work so that we can take our career to the next level. 

Jess Baker is an independent Business Psychologist and Women's Leadership Coach. She’s worked for some impressive organisations in her career including Barclays, HSBC and Aon Consulting.

I was intrigued by her 5 Day Tame Your Inner Critic Challenge that starts on 15 January. I invited Jess to give us the inside scoop on how to manage our inner critic so that we feel more confident.

Jess shares three key facts to help us understand the inner critic (sometimes described as the imposter syndrome):

  • Our brain is wired to protect us and prevent us messing up
  • We can't 'stop' those inner critic thoughts
  • But often those inner critic thoughts are based on lies or false evidence

She then goes onto share some simple yet REALLY powerful techniques to tame and disempower your inner critic.
