Confident leaders that reveal bold qualities of positive determination, flexibility and follow-through are considered trustworthy to follow because their followers feel safe. These leaders turn perceived obstacles into resources through their confidence. As confidence is a state of being stemming from our thinking and beliefs, we can develop it. We can increase our confidence through conscious experiences. Like costumes in a play, we can choose to portray our leadership character with more or less confidence. The more conscious experiences we give ourselves feeling confident, the more evidence we create for ourselves that we truly are a confident leader.
When the pressure is on today, notice yourself.
- What happens when you put your shoulders back, breathe down into your hips then speak and act with the cloak of a confident leader?
