The year Dr. Sarah Glova's company started making six-figure revenue, a mentor told her that she "needed to be more of a shark." And he wasn't alone. During that crucial period in Sarah's business, she found that she was constantly hit with advice from others—about how she spoke, how she dressed, and even what she ordered for lunch. Can you relate? You're not alone. Women are more likely to receive unsolicited advice than men are, and too much advice could be damaging your confidence, your performance, and even your relationships.
Once Sarah realized this advice didn't make her feel more capable — in fact, it made her feel less capable — she decided to learn more. After years of research, she now speaks globally about the dangerous side-effects of too much advice. In this talk, we'll explore unsolicited advice from a neuroscience perspective and talk about ways you can re-channel others' unnecessary feedback into fuel for your fire.
Join this session with Dr. Sarah Glova to learn how seasoned professionals address this problem—it'll be like applying sunscreen to protect against the harsh glares of others' unsolicited advice.
