Plan your learning: develop confidence through learning and doing. Once you know the areas in which you wish to be more confident you can begin to identify actions you can take to help you achieve this. Confident people are only confident because they have learned the skills or knowledge that they need or want.
Most people are capable of far more than they admit to themselves. Overcoming this self-doubt can simply be a matter of creating safe opportunities to practice and, by experiencing success, increase their confidence in their abilities.
The power of experiential learning is extremely valuable. To become more confident, we have to do something. Belonging to a group like European Management Assistants lends itself extremely well in this respect as members can practice and experiment with all different kinds of skills and behaviors such as chairing meetings, organizing events and presenting to a group in a safe environment – before they take them back into their work environment as confident practitioners.
