Building Confidence in Yourself & Others

17 Lessons

1 Hour 11 Minutes


As leaders, we face things every day that we never dreamed we would ever face. And one of the biggest crises is one that no one talks about – a crisis of leadership confidence. Leaders want to lead, know they must lead, and yet the situation leaves them wondering how to best meet these challenges and move forward with confidence.

Confidence can help you be more effective at anything you do. Some consider it a chicken and egg thing – does the confidence lead to the success, or does past success build confidence? The answer, of course, is yes.

You don’t need research to prove that when your confidence is higher, you will generally be less nervous and more effective. This applies to simple tasks and to more complex ones, as well. It is a part of what it means to be a human being.

The bottom line is that confidence matters a lot in our performance.

And yet, people seldom talk about the role confidence plays in our ability to lead effectively. Whether we are coaching people through organizational changes, or having crucial conversations with our team, when we are more confident, we are more effective.

In this practical and inspirational Master Class, you will learn how to have more confidence in your leadership role (and in life) and also learn how to instill confidence in those you lead.

In this Master Class, you will learn how to:

  • Recognize the value of confidence to leadership success
  • Recognize the mindset that drives leadership confidence.
  • Understand the difference between confidence and arrogance.
  • Use three tactics to grow your confidence.
  • Influence your self-talk and thereby influence your confidence.
  • Build confidence in others.
