There’s a big misconception that confidence is a thing you feel, but in reality, confidence is how you act. What counts is if other people THINK you’re confident.
This session will explore how we all often lack feelings of confidence and how to project confidence anyway. Emma Wicks and Tanya Goldhaber, two senior women who have braved every imaginable stressful professional situation and keep being told they’re really confident will cover the difference between perception and reality, how they’ve learned to project gravitas even when they’re dying inside, and how that’s really worked for them professionally. In smaller groups, we’ll share experiences, support each other with individual challenges, discuss techniques we’ve tried and learn how to speak up in a range of situations.
Session Key Takeaways:
- How to can act confident even if you don’t feel it
- How to ensure you speak up through preparing in advance
- How to manage your feelings, if you don’t feel confident and are jealous of people who do, those people probably don’t feel confident either
This session is for you if…you let a lack of confidence stop you in speaking up or going for opportunities.
