“Trust Yourself” with Melody Wilding

June 22 @ 12:00 - 13:00 CDT

A fireside chat with Melody Wilding, Author of “TRUST YOURSELF: Stop Overthinking and Channel Your Emotions for Success at Work “

Melody Wilding, LMSW, is an executive coach and human behavior expert who teaches graduate-level human behavior and psychology at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College in New York.

Wilding draws on decades of research and client work to examine the intersection of sensitivity and achievement in the workplace and offer neuroscience-based strategies to help what Melody calls “Sensitive Strivers” – empathetic, driven individuals—break free from stress, perfectionism, and self-doubt to achieve confidence, overcome imposter syndrome, speak and act with assertiveness, build resilience, and find the confidence to work and lead effectively.

She will cover:

Avoiding burnout—how to set boundaries, break your work addiction and manage emotions while juggling work and life

Overcoming imposter syndrome—how to tame self-sabotage, and cultivate self-confidence in the workplace, stop overthinking and make more effective decisions.

Stop overthinking everything—how to make smarter, more effective decisions faster, and trust your gut

Navigating stressful workplace situations—how to manage difficult conversations around getting + giing feedback or criticism, dealing with a difficult co-worker, or managing up

Managing your emotions at work – why your emotions are an asset and how to channel them into a competitive advantage in the future of work
