Confidence measures the extent to which you are self-assured and believe in your own abilities to succeed. There are many ways to leverage this trait and the resources listed below should provide you with the steps for increasing or decreasing your level of confidence.
Higher levels of confidence indicate you are able to take chances, make decisions, and take risks that have a positive impact on others.
Lower levels of confidence indicate you may be overly critical of your own capabilities and undervalue your strengths which may limit your potential to succeed.
Excessive levels of confidence indicate you may have an inflated sense of your abilities while you downplay your opportunities which may limit your ability to develop and grow.
Identify an opportunity area that you would like to change. Then, develop behaviors that you can Stop (unhelpful or limiting behaviors), Start (behaviors that you can begin now), and Continue (behaviors that you already do well) to improve in this area.
