It Might Not Be About Confidence

May 22, 2013

Confidence is bandied about as such an essential ingredient to success. Sometimes, frankly, I feel assaulted by people’s confidence, like it’s a protective shield. Other times, I wonder what is confidence?  I get confused and mistake a lack of it for natural learning wobbles.

I was lucky to lead a group coaching call this week that gave me some fresh thoughts on confidence which I share in the video below, thoughts like:

  • How we can confuse lack of confidence with lack of experience.
  • How confidence changes as we age.
  • Why lack of confidence can be a good thing – no, really!
  • And a few more thoughts. Plus you can see a little of my new space. And my new scarf!

I hope this video is useful.
