Confidence is one of the traits that leaders are expected to have. Having this allows you to sound credible, impact the lives of others, and expand your circle of influence. But how do you develop it if you lack the exposure and experience that others went through to gain the confidence they now have?
On today’s episode, I’m sharing why confidence is foundational to leadership and how being confident does not imply living fear-free. I’m also sharing some unique and unusual approaches to developing confidence that involve fear, risks, and challenges.
“It’s through facing fear and overcoming challenges that we build legit confidence.” – Eleanor Beaton
Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:
- The difference between healthy and unhealthy fear
- Building resilience in the face of ongoing changes
- Reasons to take risks in the corporate world
- Setting a good example
