NO RISK, NO RE­WARD

Elle (Canada) - - Jet Set -

Your ar­ti­cle “A Cri­sis of Con­fi­dence” was bang on. How many of us pur­su­ing lead­er­ship roles find our­selves doubt­ing our ca­pa­bil­i­ties, even though we have more than enough skill to do the job? The ar­ti­cle pointed out that “con­fi­dence might be more crit­i­cal to pro­fes­sional suc­cess than com­pe­tence.” Un­for­tu­nately, this is true. Over the years, as I climbed the cor­po­rate lad­der, I found my­self swimming with the sharks, won­der­ing if I had what it takes to nav­i­gate those murky wa­ters. The only dif­fer­ence be­tween the sharks and me was that they ex­uded con­fi­dence. Through ca­reer coach­ing, I’m shift­ing my mind­set so that I can reach my full po­ten­tial with­out be­ing eaten alive by the sharks. Any­one can do it—you just have to trust your­self and not be afraid to take a risk. It’ll be worth it.
