Banish confidence killers & say goodbye to self-doubt

Writing engaging & accessible content to clearly & accurately communicate your intended message

How does self-doubt manifest? And…what can you do about it?

Self-confidence is an action but most of us believe it’s a feeling. And so, we often believe we need to feel confident before doing something. This seminar will help you manage self-doubt and navigate confidence killers both professionally and personally.  

Explore how internal factors such as critical self-talk and rumination hurt our confidence and explore why the business of self-improvement is disproportionately directed at women. Take this opportunity to invest in yourself and overcome external factors such as bias and likeability traps. 

Let’s normalise self-doubt. Let’s normalise negative feelings. Let’s learn to stop the self-blame. Let’s learn that we’re not the problem and we’re not the sole solution either. 

Join Maja in this seminar to learn the truth about confidence. Learn what it is and what it isn’t, the myths that surround it and the tools to increase it in your life.

Professor Maja (She/Her)

Sociologist, Author, TEDx Speaker & Confidence-Builder

I am a sociologist, author and TEDx speaker.

I’m also a confidence-builder and apology-hater. I graduated with a Ph.D. in Sociology in 2014 (focusing on the sociology of women’s health), with no clear career in mind, until I attended an academic conference that completely changed the trajectory of my research, my career and my life.
