What is the “Inner Critic?”
Have you ever wondered why you behave the way you do in stressful situations? What is that deep inner motivation that drives us? The quiet voice we all hear from time to time is what Chris Salem calls, the “Inner Critic.” On this episode of #SellingWithSocial, Chris and I discuss the concept of the inner critic and how to understand and trace it back to key moments in our lives. Chris says that the inner critic contains both a negative and positive voice, he explains that because we are more apt to focus on the negative, that’s the voice that typically shines through the most. Taking it even further, Chris shares that often the inner critic’s negative themes have a root to a particular moment in our life that caused an impact, both large and small.

Leading by Example
As a leader, you are responsible for the direction and tone of your business. The health of an organization can be traced all the way up to the top. So the logic follows, as you develop and become more aware of your own strengths and weaknesses, addressing both along the way, your organization will benefit. If you are willing to take it one step further, when you set out on a journey of self-improvement, you can leverage that opportunity as a moment to lead your people and empower them to do the same. Imagine how your organization would thrive if you were able to understand the intricacies of your inner critic and by extension, you enabled your people to do the same?
