A people pleasing detox – understanding our tendencies
Many C-suite and leadership coaching clients are people pleasers. Regardless of gender or identity. They often hide it well whilst holding executive positions. They put up a façade, appear like they have high self-efficacy, however under the surface they are full of self-doubt and often high functioning anxiety. They overcompensate by exerting a tremendous amount of their energy into excelling at work. We often think external validation and achieving is the answer to help us feel better about ourselves, however this is short lived – we go looking for the next situation that gives us that dopamine hit.
You Collective are proud to bring you this Masterclass in collaboration with Rebecca Christianson and Thrive People Consulting, where creativity and diverse methodologies meet to enrich your unique leadership journey.
This free masterclass is aimed at anyone who has ever found themselves ‘playing small’ in order to accommodate others, worrying about how they are perceived by others or who has had difficulty in setting boundaries or saying ‘no’ to the detriment of their own well-being.
