Clare Whitmell on overcoming the fear of collaborations

June 20, 2024

In this episode, Clare Whitmell talks about her first experience hosting a summit. She shares her enthusiasm for collaboration and describes how she has changed her mindset about it.

A year ago, Clare was very uncomfortable with the idea of collaborating because she felt insecure and feared rejection. But once she approached it with curiosity, things shifted.

By using the self-coaching tools in the Smart Teacher’s Library, she was able to overcome her anxieties. Now she fully embraces collaboration and is already planning future summits!
