When you lead you want to be confident.
For example, when you are leading a meeting … do it with confidence.
- In yourself.
- In what you are going to deliver.
- In your ability to run the meeting.
Then the meeting will be effective!
But … you ask … how do you know the meeting will be effective?
If you are confident … you’ll be more clear.
If you are confident … you’ll be able to be more effective.
If you are confident … you’ll be comfortable with opposition.
If you doubt yourself:
- Your message will be all over the place.
- You won’t say what needs to be said.
- You’ll end up “people pleasing” instead of leading.
Being confident does not mean you will lead perfectly.
You’ll make mistakes.
But when you lead with confidence you’ll be able to learn, improve and grow.
When you lead with confidence you’ll become a better leader.
When you doubt yourself you can’t become a better leader.
You won’t risk:
- saying the hard things.
- Having the courageous conversations.
- Not being liked.
I invite you to be confident with your abilities today.
Know that you will learn, grow + improve.
Being confident in yourself does not mean you are perfect.
It does not mean that you don’t have more to learn.
Leading with confidence lets you continue to learn, grow + improve.
Lead with confidence and you will be more effective.
