We all have a voice in our head that we tune into from time to time for guidance, ideas andwisdom. Except sometimes, this voice leads us down a rabbit hole of negative self-talk andendless rumination which undermines our performance at work, interferes with our ability to make good decisions, and negatively influences our relationships.
Since we aren’t going to stop talking to ourselves— and, frankly, we don’t want to, since the voices in our heads have valuable things to say—it’s important we learn to use our introspection effectively.
Drawing on more than twenty years of ground-breaking research, University of Michigan Psychologist Ethan Kross joins How To Academy to reveal the life-changing potential of a mind constructively channelled.
Interweaving cutting-edge science with real world cases studies like Malala Yousafzai and LeBron James, Ethan will show us how we might have better conversations with ourselves – ones that make us happier, healthier, and more productive people.
After a year when most of us have spent more time alone than we would like, living indoors inside our own heads for months on end, this livestream event will help us fully harness the power of our own inner voice.
