Wallace Wilkins, Ph.D.
Optimal development for individuals, teams and organizations calls for a two-pronged strategy:
- Increasing the constructive, workplace attributes of productivity, resilience, positive communication and collegial relationships.
- Reducing or eliminating the negative, workplace attributes of stress, conflict, perfectionism, procrastination, anger and worry.
People boost their success substantially when they master their inner voice. With guidance and practice, you can abandon that harsh, inner critic and strengthen your supportive, inner mentor, which you direct toward yourself and your relationships.
