The difference between success and failure often hangs on a humiliatingly small and elusive trait that standard education never touches: confidence.
We might be aware of the importance of cultivating confidence in professional fields, for instance, dealing with proposal rejection positively. However, our misconceptions towards ‘confidence’ could prevent us from making significant progress.
On the one hand, we so often lack confidence because we implicitly regard its possession as a matter of slightly freakish good luck. We believe we are stuck with the confidence levels we were born with, but as this class shows, the opposite is true. Confidence is not a gift from the gods, but a skill that can be learned. It is a skill founded on a set of ideas we have about the world and our natural place within it.
What is more, overconfidence can be equally detrimental, especially when making important commercial decisions. Therefore, it is worthwhile drawing a clear line between confidence and being mean or arrogant.
During the class, you will learn:
We leave the class equipped with a range of confidence-inducing ideas to allow us to escape the shackles of excessive hesitancy and compliance, especially in the working environment. We are schooled in the art of confidence.
