What Is Confidence?
Think of a person that epitomizes your definition of confidence in your life — a family member, friend, co-worker, public figure. Are they outgoing and bubbly, with a stick-to-itiveness and unwavering resilience even in the face of consecutive failures? Do they command their audience’s undivided attention? They always seem to have a certain bravado, that bold, self-assuredness when presenting their opinions. These extroverted, impassioned types exude an air of confidence, but the secret is that those with deepest roots of confidence depend on more than just their expressive energy: it’s the command they have over their thoughts and actions.
Confidence,as defined in The Confidence Code by Katty Kay and Claire Shipman, is: “life’s enabler — it is the quality that turns thoughts into action.” The most effective and impactful leaders display a confidence that goes beyond strident meeting entrances. They cultivate an environment that empowers attendees to participate and encourage others to listen constructively. Being extroverted or determined in one’s singular success do not necessarily translate to confidence; one can be naturally introverted, even shy, and still be viewed as a confident, powerful leader.
Genuine confidence is infectious, inspiring those you communicate with to be a little surer of themselves, too.
