Uncovering the Secret to Speaking with Confidence Using Simple Tweaks in Your Language

Your words are powerful. Are these words promoting you or diminishing you in life? When you think back over your accomplishments in life: the job successes, the achievements, the triumphs, do you give yourself the credit you deserve? Or do you attribute it to luck, timing, or (fill in the blank) anyone but you? It's nice to be humble, but it's also important to recognize that you worked hard, had great ideas, and have the skills and talent to succeed. You worked hard to be where you are. Celebrate it. You're pretty awesome. You shouldn't be ashamed to talk about your accomplishments by diminishing your achievements using diminishing language.

How To Be Okay When Things Are Not Okay

If you're feeling overwhelmed and struggling to manage big emotions, watch this talk with the amazing Liz Fosslien. We all experience unwieldy feelings. But between our emotion-phobic society and the debilitating uncertainty of modern times, we usually don't know how to talk about what we're going through, much less handle it. Over the past two years, Liz Fosslien and Mollie West Duffy's online community has laughed and cried about productivity guilt, pandemic anxiety, and Zoom fatigue. You've seen their witty commentary and illustrations all over the internet. Scroll down for a few. Their book Big Feelings addresses anyone intimidated by big feelings they can't predict or control. They offer the tools to understand what's happening, find comfort, and face the future with a sense of newfound agency. Weaving surprising science with personal stories and original illustrations, each chapter examines one uncomfortable feeling—like envy, burnout, and anxiety—and lays out strategies for turning big emotions into manageable ones. During this Let's Talk, we'll cover the following: • How to end the cycle of intrusive thoughts brought on by regret and instead use this feeling as a compass for making decisions • How to identify what's behind your anger and communicate it productively without putting people on the defensive • Why we might be suffering from perfectionism even if we feel far from perfect, and how to detach your self-worth from what you do Big Feelings help us understand that difficult emotions are not abnormal and that we can emerge from them with a more profound sense of meaning. Of course, we can't stop feelings from bubbling up, but we can learn how to make peace with them. Liz Fosslien is an expert on how to make work better and the co-author and illustrator of Big Feelings and the Wall Street Journal best-seller No Hard Feelings. In addition, she serves as the Head of Content and Communications at Humu, a company that makes it easy for leaders and their teams to improve every week. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, TED, The Economist, and NPR. Let's Talk is a bi-weekly conversation with leading executives, thought leaders, and changemakers. There are no presentations or talking heads, just people discussing careers, family, and what matters the most to them. It doesn't have to be lonely at the top.
