The Construction Leading Edge Podcast

"It was an incredibly powerful object lesson about what our unchecked negative self-talk can turn into and just how toxic it can be for all of us."


What you'll learn about in this construction podcast episode:

  • What the "Inner Critic" sounds like, and how it can become toxic.
  • How it's self-sustaining and what it says can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
  • Beating ourselves up, what the inner critic does, is a preemptive gambit to inoculate ourselves from external shaming.
