An excerpt from the “Quieting your inner critic” online event. Career Account members can watch the full recording below.

That little voice of self-doubt — the voice of our inner critic — affects us all at some point in our lives and careers. Executive career and leadership coach Shana Montesol Johnson says that she sees the inner critic a lot in working with professionals and leaders in the global development sector.

Reflecting on her own experience battling self-doubt, Johnson says that having some awareness of your inner critic and the tools to deal with it can be a “game changer.” She joined Devex to talk about the importance of recognizing and quieting that voice, which can otherwise prevent us from reaching our full potential in our professional and personal lives.
