Creating an Inner Coach Stronger than the Inner Critic


Creating an Inner Coach Stronger than the Inner Critic

A training program designed by The Resilience Group

Project managers have the hard job of dealing with a wide range of stressors, creative clients who want things their way, tight time lines, budget restrictions and at the same time, need to manage up, and manage down. It’s hard work.

When a manager’s core competencies are met with self-doubt, their power can be instantly diminished. When projects go south, or when a client is angered, or when feedback is critical, it is easy for even competent people to get triggered by the voice of an inner critic that creates anxiety and cramps creative problem solving. That voice says things like “I’m just not up to the job”…. or “they will finally find me out as an imposter” or “I’m just not smart enough.”

At The Resilience Group we believe that this negative self-talk is a major factor in sabotaging feelings of accomplishment and satisfaction. Most of the time the voice is selling false truths, fertilized by self-doubt, and not a reflection of actual skill and capability.

We have developed a training program that teaches the origins of the mind’s negativity bias, how the multiple variations of inner criticism negatively influence our emotional state and how this negative influence leads to a loss of confidence & courageous behaviors. Our Inner-Coaching Model™ for Resilience teaches specific strategies that help managers develop an Inner Coach stronger than the inner critic—an internal voice that can support confidence, boost resilience, refocus energy and move forward towards the next challenge.
