Everyone Has a Sam

Rosi Greenberg

Know that inner voice that says we're not good enough, too much this or not enough that? That's the inner critic, or imposter syndrome, and it holds us back from reaching our true leadership potential. Rosi Greenberg invites us to explore the origins of the inner critic, see its positive intent while saying NO to its negative impact, and offer ourselves a new, more loving inner voice.

"A masterpiece... inspired and poignant." -- Amy Elizabeth Fox, Chief Executive Officer, Mobius Executive Leadership

"More than a book, reading through this work is an emotional journey, I felt it in my body and my mind, and my heart lifted up when the inner critic gets seen for what it really is." -- Sylvia Boorstein, cofounder of Spirit Rock Meditation Center and author of "It's Easier Than You Think"

Everyone Has a Sam is a fresh take on self-help, bringing together the vulnerability and psychology of Brene Brown with the humor and illustrations of Shel Silverstein. Rosi Greenberg brings Internal Family Systems psychology to life with simple illustrations and poignant text.
