Have you seen someone that appears to have everything together?

Do you wonder how they are ALWAYS able to appear confident?

If you are a woman who is an emerging leader, established executive or in a career transition, developing a well-rounded sense of confidence will create a strong foundation for you personally and professionally. Here are a few strategies that you can start implementing today that will allow you to display confidence at work, home or in other aspects of your life.

Tip #1 - Determine what aspects of your life are important for you to focus on.


Spend some quiet time with yourself to reflect on the many aspects of your life and take an honest assessment of how you feel in those areas and write it down. Try to put them into two categories:

  1. Internally (e.g. your mindset, limiting beliefs, how you mentally process challenges under stress, how you make decisions, your skillsets, knowledge base and etc.)

  2. Externally (e.g. what other people see or hear such as your appearance, how you speak. the clothes you wear, how you conduct yourself during peaceful and stressful times and etc.)

In an executive coaching session, I have found that writing down your thoughts not only commits them to memory, but it also creates an action plan for you.

Tip #2 - Create a confidence plan.

Once you have written down the aspects of your life that are important to you, narrow down the list to which area is a top priority for you to focus on right now.

Use the strategy and examples below to create your confidence plan for each aspect of your life that you identified in Tip 1.

Example 1: If you do not feel confident with how you communicate with others, ask yourself this question: What would make me feel more confident with how I communicate? Perhaps you need to slow down when you speak, take public speaking classes, ask someone for help or etc.

Example 2: If you do not feel confident with how you make decisions, ask yourself: "What would make me feel more confident with how I make decisions?" There may be additional resources that you need such as trainings, courses, books or etc.
