Book Description


Inner Critic Inner Success straddles the worlds of business and self-help in a way that’s bursting with smarts yet is full of soul. It’s a guide to finding the sweet spot in life where you can hold both success and doubt in a way that feels actionable and spacious instead of pointless and stuck. This book helps you capitalize on the dynamic and powerful relationship between critic and success. With attention and awareness, you’ll become adept at seeing the dynamics of how success and doubt play off each other on a daily basis. You’ll begin to transform that negative Inner Critic voice into a beam of light that spotlights your most cherished hopes, values and strengths. It challenges you to define success in a radical new way — on YOUR terms (versus what society, culture and business dictate) and from the perspective of how you feel about success not just how you think.

BOOK REVIEWS

"Simply 'acting' more confident has limited women at best, and made them feel inauthentic at worst. But Inner Critic takes a close look at self-defeating voices and uses them to achieve authentic career success. Feels like a one-on-one coaching process. This book will help students, employees, entrepreneurs and executives alike take charge of achieving their own definition of success."
-- Caroline Simard, PhD, Associate Director, Stanford School of Medicine Office of Diversity and Leadership and STEM diversity consultant.

"I feel like I spent the last decade of my career searching for a book like this. In Inner Critic Inner Success Stacey managed to stop me in my tracks with her humorous, yet inspiring approach toward self-awareness and creating success. Many of the pages felt like they were speaking directly to me and my struggles over the years. Her book provides practical exercises, tools, and playful stories that keep you engaged while stretching you in new ways. It's an absolutely brilliant read...the type that shakes you in all the right ways."
-- Joanna Lord, Chief Marketing Officer, Big Door

“Brilliantly written, with humor and a willingness to offer real life experience, Sargent gets to the heart of the matter and connects with her readers in a real way. The beauty of Inner Critic Inner Success is that is starts from the inside out. It doesn’t ask you to change who you are, but rather leverage who you are to experience more success.”
-- Tracy Burns, CEO, Northeast Human Resources Association

“A deep bow of gratitude to Stacey Sargent for having the courage, humor, and wisdom to tackle this topic. A gift that will empower readers to shift their own relationship with their inner critic.”
-- Matt Walker, CEO of Inner Passage and Author of Adventure In Everything: How the Five Elements of Adventure Create a Life of Authenticity, Purpose and Inspiration

"An intelligent look at why fighting fear doesn’t work, and how learning from your inner critic can transform your life, your work and your world. Thanks to the author’s leadership experience, willingness to share personal struggles and practical tools that invite real-life change, this is one of the best books on the inner critic that I’ve read.”
-- Lynn Baldwin-Rhoades, Founder, Power Chicks International

5.0 out of 5 stars I am so excited about this read! October 14, 2013
Format:Paperback
Stacey is funny, lively, down to earth and approachable, she sounds like the best friend you wish you had. She tells it straight and with humor, it's just the dose I need to stay positive and upbeat. I am in front of people, as a Pilates Instructor, 6 days a week and could easily find myself thinking I need to appear to be perfect to be the Instructor yet, with Stacey's help, I know that is a fiction of my imagination. That I am deserving of my great clients and the trust they put into me.

Format:Paperback
"Inner Critic Inner Success identifies and provides comprehensive solutions for a common challenge facing women in leadership, the Imposter Syndrome. A woman's inability to internalize their success often leaves them with the notion that at any minute they will be found out, that they are in fact a fraud. They tell others (and themselves) their success is a result of good timing or luck. In working with thousands of women around the globe I often hear about this very real problem. There are few concrete approaches to solving the Imposter Syndrome short of making lists of your accomplishments with the hope it will eventually "sink in" but even the most accomplished women continue to fight the Imposter Syndrome on a regular basis.

Stacey Sargent's approach breaks down these disbeliefs by identifying the type and source of this internal dialog. By identifying what messages we are harboring allows us to break through the corresponding emotions and negative talk into real positive breakthroughs making us more confident, productive and capable of reaching our full potential. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to remove these feelings of doubt and take their lives into a more fulfilling and positive trajectory."

Great read that helps understand the concept of the "Inner Critic", how it's stopping us from getting what we want, and what we can do to transform our fears into the power that comes from our deep inner wisdom. The exercises are practical, fun, and useful. I still do one of them now, months after reading this book for the first time. Just like a great coach, this book will help every reader make invaluable progress on their journey to self-excellence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff - Good results March 24, 2014
By SR
Format:Kindle Edition
I've seen the author's presentation on Inner Critic. The book is a great representation of her authentic and practical approach to working on ourselves. I now have some tools to manage that critic in my head so that when it does start singing (for better or for worse) I don't let it run away with any funny business. If you're looking for a book that merges theory with humanity and real-world application, this is a solid buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a known topic written about in a new way March 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought it was nice how the author used herself as one who has experienced first hand what she's writing about. She's clearly aligned with her own medicine. It's probably a great book for young women needing to hear a different perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Addition To The Genre! October 21, 2013
Format:Paperback
In her book, Inner Critic Inner Success, Stacey Sargent develops a compelling argument for the necessary role of emotions in the workplace and in relationships in general. The author's coaching model is rooted in behavioral science research (particularly the work of Daniel Goleman and others in Emotional Intelligence). Yet Sargent never tries to blind us with science. Instead, like a master story-teller, she draws upon humor, science, and common sense to encourage readers to confront personal fears and insecurities, teaching us how to leverage them for success. The author uses stories from her own personal and professional experience, client stories, and current best practices in behavioral science to create a realistic picture of our inner conflicts and how best to confront them. Fortunately, Sargent has the skill and the experience to take us beyond the negative (Inner Conflict) by presenting us with a sustainable trajectory for Inner Success. The book is packed with practical activities that are clearly explained and reinforced by case studies in such a way as to allow each reader to have the benefit of their own personal coach. Stacey Sargent's Inner Critic Inner Success is a well-crafted book, a fun read with a serious message--one that I highly commend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful book! And fun to read. January 6, 2014
Format:Paperback
I'm always looking for ways to improve myself at home and at work. Which means I've read--or at least started--my fair share of self-improvement and/or career advancement books. And I hate to admit, but have to be honest, it's hard to get all the way through any of them. I'll stick with them long enough for maybe a gem or two of advice, but then let's face it, I have other stuff to read ...

***But this book broke that pattern for me!!!*** It's written in such a conversational, approachable style that it was actually hard to put down. It was like chatting with a friend who happens to have great advice. Including all the case studies from the author's past clients and colleagues also helped me connect with the advice in a pragmatic and personal way, vs abstract and not as useful as other advice books have been. I highly recommend this book!
