Top 4 Takeaways:
Self Promotion = Career Planning
“Know the book on you” through understanding the feedback you get from others. Listen with curiosity when receiving feedback and learn how to ask “feed forward” or powerful questions when asking for feedback like, “What do you hope I’ll do? And What do you fear I’ll do?”
We are our own toughest critics; knowing your inner critics “greatest hits” will help you to overcome your inner antagonist and elevate your inner protagonist.
Courage precedes confidence. Practice the small behaviors in the moments that scare you. Surviving these little moments will build your confidence over time.
