Everyone is always saying that leaders need to “be more confident.” But what if that’s the wrong question to ask?This week, we’re talking about the confidence myth. This episode is a compilation of my experiences stepping into my own confidence and leadership, sprinkled with observations I’ve had coaching hundreds of clients in the senior leadership suite about their relationship with themselves.Society sells us a nasty bill of goods. When I get to ‘X’ I will be ‘Y.’ When I get the title of ‘VP’ I will be ‘Y’ or when I make ‘X’ amount of money then I will be “confident.”We’re left in this constant state of future forwarding what we’re supposed to look like. That success or happiness exist somewhere in the future. The result is that we’re constantly in a state of lack, waiting for something in the future to happen.What if you just said, “it’s starting now.” What if you started acting TODAY like the future leader you were always meant to be?
Below are a list of underdog habits. Do you see yourself in this list of activities?
- Deferring to others
- Being uncomfortable taking up space
- Waiting to be asked
- Talking too much or too little
These habits hold us back from expressing our full potential, our full confidence, our full selves.
