Make a list of small be­havioural changes

Woman & Home - - Life Edit -

Use this time to fig­ure out how you want to change your be­hav­iour dur­ing con­fi­dence-zap­ping sit­u­a­tions. Think about the sce­nario – when re­la­tion­ship prob­lems threaten or when you have to give a pre­sen­ta­tion at work – then de­cide what you could do or say to be more as­sertive. Use the “If… then” for­mat to out­line your in­ten­tions. So you could say, “If I’m in a in­ter­view, then I will spend more time look­ing the in­ter­viewer in the eye.” Or, “If I need to be more as­sertive in a meet­ing, then I’ll think of five things I want to say and write them down.”
