In this inspiring and informative episode, we talk about authenticity - what it means, and how to explore what our authentic self looks like. We cover topics like present self-awareness, how to discover your authentic self, building a support system, handling (healthily) negative feedback, and nurturing a relationship with the inner critic and inner mentor.
We were guided by Amelia Kruse (https://www.ameliakruse.com/)
Amelia is an established leadership coach (PCC, EQAC) who helps creative professionals develop their emotional intelligence and leadership abilities to find their form of holistic excellence. She works with leaders and aspiring leaders from companies like Droga5, Google, Spotify, AirBnB and Anomaly.
Amelia began her career as an environmental consultant before co-founding the 'creatives without borders' business, Komai, where she worked predominantly in South East Africa developing music education initiatives in collaboration with The New School in New York. She then went on to work at Refinery29 as the Director of Product Marketing and experienced first-hand the life-changing benefits of coaching and fell in love with the philosophy.
In 2016 she received her certification in coaching from the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and founded her own coaching practice. She is based in New York and coaches clients globally.
In this episode, she helps us learn about the concept of authenticity, and how we can live an authentic life that supports all our needs and doesn't veer towards any extreme ideologies. We’ll learn about how best to explore the concept independently by exploring our psyche, belief system, motivations, needs and desires to put together a clearer picture of who we are at our authentic best.
