Confidence: The Path to Freedom. A podcast with Sheenah Hankin, Ph.D

Welcome to a Leadership Development edition of Total Picture Radio with Peter Clayton reporting. Joining us today is Sheenah Hankin, author of Complete Confidence: A Handbook.

According to Dr. Hankin, confident people react positively and successfully to life's problems and challenges. Those who lack confidence often view themselves as victims - blaming others or binging on drugs, sex, food, or alcohol to mask their feelings of shame or worthlessness. Her book, first published in 2005, has been revised and updated for 2008, and is published by Harper, an imprint of Harper Collins. Sheenah is one of New York's most popular psychotherapists. She practices Cognitive Appraisal Therapy, an approach she developed with her husband, Dr. Richard Wessler. Sheenah has conducted numerous workshops in North America and Europe. Based on her expertise and experience in helping people to turn around their careers and businesses, she has recently begun to offer courses for the public based on her book Complete Confidence.

Questions Peter Clayton Asked Sheenah

  • What's new about confidence? Why the revised edition of your book?
  • You're a shrink based in NYC, and you compare you job to that of a NY taxi cab driver. Can you explain this?
  • Yours is the first book I've seen which asks the reader to sign a contract which stipulates, among other things, that the reader will indeed, read the entire book, from cover to cover. Why?
  • Why did you write Complete Confidence?
  • You write "the majority of depressed people have emotional immaturity." Can you explain?
  • Sheenah, do you ever procrastinate?
  • People who lack confidence are self-centered?
  • I want to talk about the old, fat, stupid, loser syndrome, because I think everyone at one time or another has put themselves in at least one of these categories. I score on all five. How do you break out?
  • The infomercial business can be broken down into weight-loss, wrinkle loss, or get rich in real estate.
  • I want to discuss age - there is definitely a grey ceiling out there - in the workplace and in the media. the only lifestyle magazine you'll find with someone over fifty on the cover is AARP. The media and the advertisers are again' us Sheenah - unless they're marketing ED or prostate drugs. -- Tell us about Bob, the 58 year old who came to see you.
  • So how do you go from the losing hand to the winning hand?
  • What are the elements of complete confidence?
