Like many, acclaimed actor and director Jesse Eisenberg knows what it’s like to feel anxious and panicked on the job. Even the dazzling lights of a Hollywood film set can’t hide the nagging feelings of fear and self-doubt. He’s learned that the most effective way to handle these emotions is not to push them aside but to channel them in the direction of his desired outcome. 

In his new 10-part class with Big Think+, Jesse shares his tried and true methods to manage self-doubt, learned through his experience wearing different hats in the film industry. He teaches us how to create community when we’re new to leadership, forging a flexible and unabashedly human path toward reaching our goals.
