For some of us, it’s probably the hardest thing. Yeah, sure we all have areas of strength where we’re confident. But confidence in decision-making, confidence in your judgment, and confidence with humility – these things take time to learn.
It’s the start of another school year. The path ahead is not a sprint. Remember to:
- Take your time.
- Be in the moment.
- Listen with empathy.
- Believe in your vision and mission.
- Assume good intentions.
- Seek to support.
None of that says confidence, but every bit of it is perceived as confidence.
That’s the trick. The end goal is not confidence…though our fears or insecurities say it is.
Try to be confident, and you’ll be perceived as arrogant. Try to be authentic, and you’ll be perceived as confident.
If you’d like to accelerate your confidence and authenticity as a leader, consider digging deep in this leadership community.
