confidence AT WORK
Whatever your work situation, confidence is crucial for success. It helps you make choices that move you forward.
From positive thinking to body language, building resilience and mindset tools, there are many ways to build confidence.
Why having confidence matters
Having low self confidence can make life uncomfortable even painful, causing you to avoid certain situations and passing up on opportunities. Your level of confidence may depend upon other life circumstances such as stressful events, periods of change or unpleasant experiences.
Sometimes you simply need to build confidence in a specific area of your life such as at work or in social situations. Whatever the circumstances, confidence is a skill that can be rebuilt and importantly, last.
Having confidence is a feeling that you are comfortable in your own skin, you can be yourself rather than feeling self-conscious or worrying about your performance. You can trust in your abilities, speak up in situations where others may not agree with you and be resilient in times of uncertainty.
It has been said that people with higher levels of confidence are more likely to be successful in life. However research now suggests that you only need moderate levels of confidence because confidence that's too high means that you don't see all sides of a situation or be able to evaluate high risk, which is essential.
Now, that's good news because the person with low confidence already has essential resources for success, and adjusting confidence levels is very doable.
It's good to realise that having low self-confidence isn’t a life sentence and you can learn to change it. With effective tools and techniques you can learn to build your confidence and thereby shift towards a happier, healthier mindset that supports feelings of self-worth and greater success in your endeavours.
