“Easy-to-read” As an HR professional, Consultant and Coach, I have seen my share of individuals who have been hired because of their education, experience and skill-set but have found themselves stalled in their careers because of the critic within. They are hesitant to take charge of situations for fear that they might not really be the right person to do so, or they may decide to let a good idea fade because they are not sure they can stand up and sell the idea and themselves. We all have inner critics but some seem to be louder than others. The tips in this book can help tremendously to tame that inner critic and to get back on a path of success and professional growth. This book is easy to read and reinforces all the right behaviors and actions that can make a difference to one’s personal and professional life.
