On today’s episode, Dr. Jessica Metcalfe joins us with the second half of the interview discussing how to become an effective leader and workplace culture. Then, the best-selling author discusses her new book, Speak Kindly, You’re Listening, which is about the words you use to speak to yourself.
“Dr. Jessica heard her voice say on repeat: “I’m not good enough,“ “I’m not worth it, “What is wrong with me?” and used them as a way to motivate herself, until those words broke her. That inner voice belittled her and shouted insults. She didn’t understand how that same voice took care of cancer patients and loved ones but chose to call her names. Being diagnosed with her own mental health concerns compelled Dr. Jessica to find the answer to the question, “Why do high-achieving women experience such a negative inner voice?” Speak Kindly, You’re Listening breaks down four key components: imposter syndrome, perfectionism, burnout and that dark inner voice while connecting the link between them all.”
Tune in to hear Jessica explores the connection of those inner voices, confidence, and self-intelligence.
