Howdy! Are you wondering how to boost self-confidence at work?
I want to provide you some guidance in that area and even a free guide, which you can get down below.
Self-confidence at work can be elusive, but it comes down to three primary things.
1. How to boost self-confidence at work with clarity of purpose
The first thing is Clarity of Purpose.
Q: What is it that you’re trying to accomplish at work?
We can quickly run short of confidence when we don’t understand our job or are not committed to our career or company.
What is your purpose?
It’s vital to understand what you’re trying to accomplish in the first place. Do you want to:
- Get promoted,
- Change careers, or
- Keep your job and survive the day-to-day?
It can be difficult to feel confident about something if you don’t understand it, if you’re not fully committed to it, or if you’re not clear about what you’re trying to achieve.
This key element is often missing when people do not have a positive experience at work or when our employees are not performing at their best. It’s an important factor to consider.
2. How to boost self-confidence at work with great relationships
The second thing is developing and having great relationships with the people you work with, including your peers, your boss, and your direct reports.
You will find your confidence is boosted when you’re working with people who understand you and whom you understand. Your confidence is boosted when you have deep connections to your network.
It’s easier to feel like people have your back and you’re part of the in-group when you have something in common regarding what you’re doing and how it’s going.
Q: Have you ever felt like an outsider at work?
If you have yet to feel confident in those moments, I guarantee it’s because you don’t feel connected to the people you work with. It would be best if you continually connected to people and looked for ways to connect and reconnect.
Relationship skills are an important element, and thankfully these skills are trainable. There are hundreds and thousands of people around the world who specialize in relationship coaching and counseling.
Unfortunately, too often, we overlook relationships and relationship skills at work. Some work environments, cultures, and management styles disregard or disrespect good working relationships.
Relationships are important, and are learnable. Having great relationships at work is key number two of how to boost self-confidence at work.
3. How to boost self-confidence at work with leadership skills
Finally, the third element to boost self-confidence at work is to be in an environment where leadership is present, you have good relationships, and you’re respected and trusted by leaders.
Sometimes leadership in the organization isn’t strong, you don’t have a good relationship with people in leadership roles, or trust and respect aren’t present.
However, leadership can start with you. Leadership MUST start with you. Wherever you are, leadership always starts with you.
Whatever you’re doing, you’re leading:
- Are you leading in the way you want to be known for?
- Are you setting the example you and others would like to follow?
Even the lowest person on the totem pole needs to bring leadership into the area they manage.
You can bring leadership to your area if you know why you are there and what you are there to accomplish, and you have some commitment to that, and you have relationships that are working. You can bring a sense of empowerment and authority. You’ll feel like you are a part of something important and are making things happen.
If you’re looking for the standard “self-confidence” tropes like “dress for success”, hit the gym, and take a course in public speaking, you’d find all of them here. If you’ve noticed, the leaders you trust and respect likely dress well, take care of themselves, are thoughtful and articulate, and commit to self-development in areas that matter to them. Particularly if you’re in an environment where these things are absent, you’ll be a leader in these areas when you begin demonstrating them.
Those are three ways to boost self-confidence at work.
