Silencing The Lies

Silencing The Lies

Are you hearing voices? They might be telling you lies!


Every one of us has two voices inside us. The first voice is the one that comes from our mouth that other people can hear and can be a powerful tool to express ourselves. 


The second voice is one that only we can hear. This voice exists only inside our head and makes continual commentary about us and everything around us; it is our inner self-talk. Our second voice can be a powerful ally when it serves as our inner cheerleader. Unfortunately, this voice can also be our biggest critic, undermining us at every turn.


This inner critic is not really you! The critic is just borrowing your voice without your permission. Then, in your own voice, it tells you terrible things that undermine your confidence and hold you back from greatness. 


This exercise will help you tell this inner critic to shut up. It’s time to silence the lies.

That is the goal of a retrospective, to continually assess and improve our performance throughout our projects. Use this template to complete your own retrospectives.
