No matter how confident you are most of the time, or how adept you are at projecting authority when it’s required, it’s likely that you’re also familiar with the gnawing feelings of fear and self-doubt – two very human emotions that CGH wishes we all talked about more.

If you caught CGH contributor Beck Tench’s “Swimming with Sharks” video, you might know a bit about her eloquent approach to talking about these deeply held feelings. Recently, she’s helped us uncover some extra insight with another beautiful piece about where fear comes from. Do yourself a favor and check it out here: How to Draw a Shark
