Leadership Minute: The Power of Self -Confidence

confidence

Giving people self-confidence is by far the most important thing that I can do. Because then they will act. – Jack Welch

One of the most meaningful and lasting things you can do as a leader is to instill confidence in your people. When your people come to the place where they believe that they can do anything they set their minds to then their potential is unlimited. All some people need in order to go from their “I think I can” attitude to their “I know I can” reality is found in the power of your words and how well you communicate them. Self-confidence is given not only by your words but by backing them up with your actions. Turn your people loose with their self-confidence and see where they can go, what they can achieve, and what they can become.  The gift of self-confidence is a powerful tool. Use it wisely, and use it generously.
