October 2014 —

Greensboro, N.C. – A recent article in Psychology Today ,”Make Your Self-Talk Work for You,” draws heavily on CCL’s cutting-edge research. The article illustrates how important it is for senior executives (as well as non-executives) to engage in constructive self-talk and to avoid using dysfunctional self-talk. Constructive self-talk can lead to more positive outcomes, such as lower job strain and more effective leadership of others. Conversely, dysfunctional self-talk likely leads to negative outcomes, such as lower creativity and originality.

The article was influenced by research conducted at CCL’s Leadership at the Peak program for senior executives by psychometrician Phillip Braddy; EMEA Executive Vice President and Managing Director David Altman; and senior faculty member John Fleenor. They collaborated on the project with Dr. Steven Rogelberg and other researchers at University of North Carolina-Charlotte.
