Are you ready to learn some exciting news and strategies about confidence?
Would you like to support others in your life who need to be more confident?
I’m a proud member of the World of Business and Executive Coaching Summit (WBECS). I learn the latest techniques about Master Coaching to share with my clients and loyal readers to support their professional growth. Jennifer Paylor, Author of Cracking the H Code shared fascinating information about humility. Many of the coaches on the call were under the wrong impression about humility. Some thought that humility was a weakness and lowering yourself to the importance of others. Wow! This is wrong! Who knew? You’ll receive more information on this in future articles. Let’s get started so we can all feel more confident about who we are and what we stand for in this crazy life.
Strategies About Confidence #1: Humility is NOT a Sign of Weakness
Humility is about learning and asking questions. How do you show up when you don’t have the new skills?
It’s all about the following:
- Being open-minded and showing up this way
- Learning from failure
Strategies About Confidence #2: Knowing That You Need Help
People who show humility know that getting support for things that they don’t know is part of being successful. My goal in coaching is to have clients feel more confident in their life after we practice new strategies and implement them. Practicing and implementing is 50% of our success and wanting to change is the other 50%.
I teach an online course, Kick Conflict to the Curb: Get the Respect YOU Deserve. Every class blows me away with their willingness to admit that they enrolled because they want to become more confident during tough conversations. This openness is why the classes have been such a success. I seem to attract people who believe in professional growth and they bring an open mindset to the class!
Strategies About Confidence #3: Being Vulnerable is Part of Showing Humility
The path to mastery is starting off vulnerable knowing that it is not always easy. I recently became a Certified Virtual Presenter from Espeakers. We learned about Zoom and all the technical issues to correct when they appear. It looks good on paper. The reality is that we can’t control bandwidth issues all the time. There will be Zoom bombers. Some people don’t know how to use zoom and we need to show them during the meeting.
I love it when the stars are lined up during my Zoom classes! My mastery is working! Yet, when there are poll issues, the break-out rooms don’t work, or microphone issues with participants – this is when true humility shows up. I’m comfortable in my skin. I’ve practiced and learned. Yet when I’m not in control, I just accept this and show my vulnerability and laugh while I do my best to fix the issues. We need to start off being vulnerable to learn complexity.
