Which is more essential to success – to feel confident or be competent? Surveys show that most companies’top brass choose the former as competence goes to waste, if a person is not aware of his strengths in the first place. In the workplace, one must muster confidence and presence that comes with self-esteem. Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO explains, “Professionals must learn to celebrate signature strengths and keep working on developing self-assurance, with every success earned, big or small.”
She offers these simple tips for boosting confidence:
1. Reflect on your strengths. Work on enhancing your forte, skills, and qualities.
2. Use positive body language. Stand tall. Make eye contact. Smile. Avoid tilting head that signals submission.
3. Adjust your focus. Instead of worrying how others see you, express interest in others. Engage and support others. Work on giving rather than getting.
4. Own your strengths. Appreciate your uniqueness and be kind to yourself.
5. Boost your vocabulary. Dump shopworn words like “ok,” ”nice,” and “awesome” that do not mean anything. Do away with fillers like “you know,” “I mean,” “like,” “actually,” “basically.” Practice thinking before talking to ponder on your succeeding lines.
