It's all too easy to dismiss ourselves, to say that we aren't good at what we do, that our ideas just don't measure up. Too boring, too obvious. Not clever, not charming. We just don't have the same "stuff" that we admire in others. Too easy to tell ourselves that we're stupid dumb-dumbs who should hide in a cave. Well, that's where you're wrong, you doofus. Sorry! Sorry! That's me projecting my own inadequacies.

This workshop will get us to face the fact that we all have stories worth telling, that we all have ideas worth sharing. We will unearth and exorcise that hypercritical voice inside us that stops us from being our best selves. We will learn to take up space, to speak from our perspectives, and to believe in our own contributions.

 Bullet Points:

  • Work on silencing your inner critic
  • Embrace your perspective and experience
  • Give your talents a voice
