You got this!
As leaders, we need to inspire confidence in our people, and one thing that will do that is having confidence in ourselves.
What do YOU need to feel confident?
For some people, it’s having a track record of previous successes, so if you are one of these people, give yourself a confidence boost with a quick review of past wins.
For some people, it’s building consensus—you know you have a good idea, but you’ll be confident to move into action on it if a couple of other people also think it’s a good idea. Run it by them and get their input.
For some people, it’s having a well-thought-out plan. Give yourself think time and planning time, and have someone whose competence you trust confirm you have it right.
For some people, confidence is relationship-based—confirm that you have at least one person (or many people) who are happy you are on their team and have your back as you move forward.
If you can build that confidence in yourself, you’ll find it easier to grow it in the members of your team.
