Managing is a tough job. There are superiors and subordinates who have huge expectations of you. It can sometimes feel like you are piggy in the middle.
One of the challenges managers often face is a lack of self confidence. What can you do to be a more confident manager?
Drop The Misconceptions About What Being Confident Is
Have A Decision And Action Bias
Start Small And Build
Recognise You Are A Manager On Merit
Cut Yourself Some Slack
The Bottom Line: The reality is that there will be times when your confidence is high and other times when it will be low. When in the dip, make sure you tap into what made you successful in the past.
