What happens when you empower employees or colleagues with true confidence? Work relationships, productivity and efficiency increases.
During this illuminating talk, Dr Katherine answers all the questions on how to become confident as well as the action steps to get us there.
Delivered in person in Australia or via Zoom to any audience in the world, ‘True Confidence’ can be delivered as a short speech, keynote or workshop at your next event.
The (critical) importance of confidence
No matter how competent you are at something, if you don’t believe in yourself, even great success will fail to fix the feeling of being a phoney. Research tells us that:
70% of people in the workforce suffer imposter syndrome at some point in their careers
Confidence is often as important, if not more important, than competence
Women will aim for a less-competitive, lower-ranked position because they predict they won't succeed in higher roles
Getting clear on confidence
The problem with boosting our self-belief is that many of us are afraid it will come across as boastful. “S/he’s so full of himself” is a statement that can paralyse even the bravest of us.
So when it comes to building confidence, humility is critical to ensure we come across with care and consideration - factors that are oh-so important when building trust-worthy relationships in our personal lives or our careers.
In fact, few people know the word confidence comes from the Latin roots con- (“with”) + fīdō (“trust”).
The mindset of possibility
Why is it that some people can step into the unknown without a care in the world, while others are paralysed with even the smallest challenge?
It's deceptively simple: it is not our lack of competence, ability, intelligence or desire that prevents us from stepping up to the next level, but rather that we trust ourselves no matter what the outcome is.
In this hit-home, humour-filled and inspiring talk, the audience will be captivated with an in-depth approach that turns a mindset of ‘stay safe’ into making the ‘impossible' possible, bridging the gap between where they are now, and where they'd like to be.
Your audience will gain clarity on:
What confidence is (and what it is not)
The difference between being arrogant and confident
Why failure is the key to confidence (& how to stop avoiding it)
The hero-free, realistic way to resilience
