The Inner Critic Workshop

You know that voice in your head saying you're not ready for that promotion? You're not smart enough to be in this meeting? The part of you that doubts and buries ideas before they see the light of day? That questions your ability to learn new things and adapt to change? 

That potential-stealing voice is your inner critic.

In this interactive workshop, we'll dive deep into why we have an inner critic, learn tools to quieten that voice, reframe fear and tune into the part of you that can fulfil your potential. Participants will take away lifelong tools to silence the critic, optimise performance and step into being more.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will: 

  • Understand the inner critic and why they have one
  • Learn how the critic can control their life, their decisions & their future
  • Gain lifelong tools to quiet their critic 
  • Rethink fear and make it work for them in a new healthy way
  • Understand what is possible if the critic wasn’t holding them back
  • Learn how to transform self talk from negative to positive and use it as a tool for success

    I've had the privilege of watching Kit work for some years, and working with them directly more recently. Kit is skilled, energetic, compassionate and highly professional. As a facilitator,  Kit is inclusive and enthusiastic; as a programme designer, thoughtful and outcomes-focused. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Kit for any facilitation or coaching work - you'll be lucky to work with them!

    "This workshop was the perfect introduction as Kit patiently covered all aspects of non-binary life in Aotearoa. With positivity and insight, Kit shared their life experience while acknowledging the experience within our management team.   What Kit provided us with is a window into this world and the opportunity to become allies as part of our work at the CAB. Following on from this workshop my own eyes have been opened. I have shared the written material with all volunteers and spoken with them about the workshop. At least two volunteers have printed the material to share with their families; hoping for example, to provide support for close family who are puzzled by what they are experiencing. In addition, I have observed the binary nature of support offered and am in a position to kindly point out the potential for the inclusion of our nonbinary community here.   It is a great privilege to have learned from Kit. To use pronouns correctly, to provide clients with all options for their demographic record and to manaaki all clients with respect for their identity."
