Trust Yourself: Stop Overthinking Webinar

May 6 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Being highly attuned to your emotions, your environment, and the behavior of others can be the keys to success, but they can also lead to overthinking everything and burnout.

In TRUST YOURSELF: Stop Overthinking and Channel Your Emotions for Success at Work (Chronicle Prism; May 4, 2021), human behavior expert and executive coach Melody Wilding, LMSW draws on decades of research and client work to examine the intersection of sensitivity and achievement in the workplace and offer neuroscience-based strategies to break free from stress and self-doubt to find the confidence to work and lead effectively.

Wilding turns the conventional approach to finding personal and professional fulfillment on its head, arguing that sensitivity is not a hinderance but a superpower—if managed correctly.

“Sensitive Strivers”—what Wilding calls individuals who are both highly sensitive and high performing—are often so influenced and worried by how they appear to others, they struggle with overthinking, emotional reactivity, perfectionism, and an inability to set clear boundaries—which can hold them back from reaching their full potential as leaders and professionals.

Combining cognitive behavior, mindfulness and neuroscience with communications, leadership, and career development skills, Wilding provides concrete steps to channel these qualities in constructive ways, overcome inadequacy, and thrive in the workplace.
