4 PM PST 5 PM MST 6 PM CST 7 PM EST
Have you held yourself back from getting a book out into the world because you feared rejection? Have you ever considered that you might be as afraid to succeed as you are to fail?
In her book, The Thriver’s Edge: Seven Keys to Transform the Way You Live, Love and Lead, transformational leadership expert and executive coach Dr. Donna Stoneham show readers how to move from surviving to thriving. Through personal stories, case studies of clients, and sharing what she’s learned over her twenty-five-year coaching and teaching career, Donna discusses why people are as afraid to succeed as they are to fail. Using her THRIVER model, she creates a path to help readers uncover the beliefs and fears that hold them back from more fully expressing their potential, then provides tools and reflection questions for how to break those obstacles and create the life they yearn to live. Practical, applicable, and transformative, The Thriver’s Edge is a “coach in a book” that teaches readers to unleash their potential, fulfill their dreams, and offer their best to the world.
In this webinar, Donna will discuss the fears that hold writers back. She will provide practical tools to break through those fears by applying some of the keys to thriving from her book. You will learn:
- About the Jonah Complex and why many of us fear success as much as failure.
- How to tune into and leverage your inner champion and the soul-tenders in your life, rather than the inner-critic and the doubt-planters that seek to hold you back.
- Skillful ways to manage your inner critic when it rears its ugly head.
- What it takes to create and sustain the resilience you need as a writer.
- Ways to deepen self-trust and follow your inner compass.
- How to live “at cause” versus “at effect” in your writing career.
