Confidence And Leadership

To be a stronger leader, you need to practice self-confidence. If you’re always second-guessing yourself and feeling shy around your coworkers, they won’t follow you.

Confident leaders have a strong sense of self and rarely express self-doubt. They understand who they are and are comfortable in their own skin. Charismatic leaders are also optimists. They see the glass as half full instead of half empty and are always looking on the bright side.
