Boosting Your Confidence

by May 2, 2018

Confidence is important when it comes to your job; it gives you the strength to think of new ideas, lead a team, and so much more.

So many of us struggle with confidence at work, especially if you’re new to the workplace. Building up your confidence might sound daunting, but there are ways to make it less so. In her article here, Sonia Thompson highlights a few recommendations on boosting your confidence in the workplace.

  • Take note from those around you: Try to surround yourself with other confident people if you can. If you feel comfortable, ask a friend or mentor ways they boosted their confidence in the past. They probably have some helpful insights to share.
  • Stay active, not passive: If you’re seen as a “doer” at work, people will recognize you as confident. You’ll also start to recognize yourself as confident. The more you get done, the better you’ll feel.
  • Don’t be afraid of failure: Any successful, confident professional will tell you that there are always many small (or sometimes big) failures on the road to success. Remember that this is not a reflection of your competence, and the best thing to do is to learn from these mistakes for next time.
