We continued our work in training our inner coach to override the inner critic that so often steals the microphone! I asked students if they heard their inner critic at any point over the past week now that we’ve been intentionally listening. Many students shared that it surfaced frequently for them during testing. What did you do when you heard that voice criticizing you? Students turned to their inner coach to convert those thoughts to coaching statements! What an empowering tool to take into daily life and learning!

Please enjoy the following video which we watched together. I really enjoy how we could relate to the inner critic in our head as an employee that’s been trained wrong and we need to retrain the employee to be an inner coach. Great Micro connection for all our little entrepreneurs!

Students played a fun game called “What can I say to myself”. We split into teams and practiced converting inner critic statements into fabulous inner coach statements. I was blown away by their responses!

After our game we created our own positive self talk shields covered in inner coach statements to protect us against negative, inner critic thoughts.
