As humans, we're often our own harshest critics. We believe that self-judgment and self-criticism are the driving forces behind our success, helping us avoid complacency and stay motivated. But what if we've been mistaken all along? What if I told you that self-compassion, not self-condemnation, holds the key to owning our inadequacies and fueling our motivation?
In this talk, we'll cover the fundamentals of self-compassion and its profound benefits, which touch on topics from relationships to resilience, and wellbeing to personal development. I'll illustrate the power of self-compassion with a personal story and explain how it helped me recover from burnout. Finally, we'll learn how to effectively practice self-compassion and how, as leaders, you can promote it within your teams.
