Confidence. We know when we have it. And we know when we don’t. What’s harder to figure out is how to have it in any moment, especially in those most challenging of situations when the course of our professional ambitions requires us to speak about ourselves: job interviews, performance reviews, speeches, pitches, and networking. Anytime, the spotlight is on us, we know others are judging our every experience, and it is easy to let self-assurance fly out the window. The key to believing in yourself is upgrading the way you talk about yourself – both to others and (perhaps even more importantly) to yourself.
As a webinar participant you will:
- Explore the tools of narrative and storytelling that can be applied to nearly any conversation about you.
- Create your own story about an accomplishment – one that inspires you and leaves you with the confidence to tell it in any situation. (Be sure to come with a favorite accomplishment in mind to practice with!)
- Differentiate between arrogance and confidence and cultivate the ability always to project the latter.
