The Confidence Story

Your Story about Confidence

The greatest projects and schemes die for no grander reasons than that we don’t dare. Indeed, research shows that having the right level of confidence makes us more likeable, productive, influential and ultimately successful. That’s why nearly half of all companies say they look for confidence when hiring.

In this two hour conversation with Peter de Kuster you will:

• Learn how to identify the right level of confidence for a given task.

• Identify sources of confidence we can rely on and ways of coping with anxiety.

• Learn how to overcome setbacks and remain confident when things get tough.

• Explore how our personal histories may be unhelpfully determining the level of confidence we bring to tasks.

What characterises mastery of this skill? Professionals with high levels of confidence  are able to openly demonstrate their skills and celebrate everyone’s successes. They speak up to negative ‘inner voices’ that so often are the source of self-criticism holding us back from our potential. When it comes  to new projects and challenges at work,  they are optimistic and realistic about pursuing goals. 

What characterises a lack of this skill? Professionals with a lack of confidence  are usually more likely to self-sabotage.  They have a tendency to catastrophise  the consequences of mistakes or setbacks.  Due to feelings of inadequacy, they might find it hard to stick to deadlines and hesitate to deliver results. Publicly presenting their work is often a significant challenge.
