As a mindfulness speaker and coach, I work with a lot of corporate leaders who are convinced that being hard on themselves will yield better results. Even when I share that research shows self-criticism leads to heightened levels of depression and anxiety, lower self-confidence, and increased fear of failure, these clients are reluctant to embrace a different attitude. Even though self-compassion can be a challenging practice, research shows that the practice improves our performance and our overall well-being.
