EP 11: Real Confidence- Making Pet Peeves Productive

I hate it when... 

Whether it’s a friend who always cancels plans last minute, a partner who makes a hobby out of interrupting you or a boss who is consistently late for your 1:1s, these micro-disses don’t just annoy us, they can downright piss us off. 

What happens next? Our bodies and brains tell us something not’s right in the world and we usually harbor quiet resentment or we lash out. 

Neither is good.

But what is good is when we use pet peeves productively as signals when other people transgress our values.

In this episode of Real Confidence, I’m taking you behind the scenes into one of our most-loved training exercises. You’ll learn how to: 

  • Turn your pet peeve inside out to see what’s really upsetting you 
  • Get clarity on your values and better manage a situation when someone violates them
  • Use your inside-out pet peeves as the starting point to confidently communicate with the person on the other side of the peeve
