06.02.16 Dethroning Your Inner Critic

NAWBO SJ Business Growth Networking Luncheon, with Guest Speaker Joanna Kleinman!

You will discover how the inner critic, or the voice inside the mind, influences personal productivity, your sense of yourself, your relationships, and the overall quality of your life.

Joanna will also address how the inner critic influences how people interact with clients and customers, and how others experience them when they are driven by the voice of the inner critic.

You will learn that it is the inner critic that currently shapes how you see yourself, how you see the work you are doing, how it prevents you from progressing in your business, and holds you back from achieving your goals.

You will learn specific tools to distance yourself from the automatic messages of the inner critic, and to see what is possible by reclaiming your power.

11:30 – 12:00 Check-in and open networking
