Copy of Internal Leader

Internal Leader

Self-leadership is not something that most people contemplate. However, those in leadership should self-evaluate in order to clear the way for success. Exploring your inner critic is a must to help you understand what is holding you back from growth. Usually, it can be traced to the power given to one’s inner critic. Turning that commonly negative voice into a positive one can be achieved.

Our inner critic is known by many names: Inner Controller, Gremlin, Critical Inner Voice, Critical Voice, Judger, and Guilt Tripper to name a few. Many books might recommend that you ignore this voice as the enemy. My recommendation is to befriend it and make it your ally. This powerful inner voice that is usually the producer of shame or guilt can and should be tamed. This training of your inner critic is a process and taking away its power does not happen overnight.

Becoming aware of and positively using the power of your inner critic will make you a more effective leader. Ultimately, your inner critic can and will become your internal leader.
