Need To Silence Your Inner Critic & Boost Self-Confidence? These Women Show Us How

Shutting off your inner critic could be one of the hardest things you do as an employee. The fact of the matter is, dealing with naysayers – even if it happens to be yourself – is a challenge that everyone faces on a daily basis. But some of the most successful people in business and beyond have been able to turn the criticism thrown at them into stepping stones to reach even greater heights in their careers.

Some of these very people have been recognised as part of The Weekly’s Great Women of Our Time Awards over the past 13 years, that aims to shine a spotlight on 18 outstanding, high-achieving working women every year in six respective categories.
