Being A More Confident Manager

I recently had the opportunity to interview Joan Henshaw as part of a Virtual Leadership Telesummit.

Joan very kindly shared with me her thoughts to Skyrocketing Your Management Confidence.

One of the things that really struck a chord with me was what she shared around beliefs. During her call, she said that what she noticed was that:

  1. Managers often felt that they did not have the right to manage.
  2. Sometimes managers felt that people did not want to be managed.
  3. Managers needed to be perfect at the everything.

Reflecting on these three things, it struck me that if we go around carrying these beliefs, it is no wonder that some managers struggle to be confident in their role.

So what other beliefs are you holding that are stopping you from being a highly effective manager?

Make a note of these and then really challenge whether they are true or just things you are making up.
