12. How apologies kill confidence with Professor Maja

by | May 24, 2019

Professor Maja Jovanovic is an author, TEDx speaker sociologist and apology-hater. Apologies are confidence killers. So, why are women apologizing all the time? Apologies matter, and with every unnecessary apology we give, we chip away at our confidence. In this episode I talk to Professor Maja about why women apologize all the time and what this does to our confidence and how other people perceive us. She shares strategies to help women to stop apologizing.
