How Managers Can Gain Confidence Through Training

Confidence is a positive emotion that is based upon four things:

  1. Knowledge.
  2. Good ideas.
  3. Training.
  4. Self-concept.

1. Confidence is based upon knowledge.

If you don't have a clue what you are doing, then how can you feel confident?

You can't.

Confidence comes from competence.

If you lack confidence, then take it as a signal that your brain does not know enough to deal successfully with the situation.

If you knew exactly what to do, and exactly what to say, then you would exude confidence.

A lack of confidence means you need more knowledge.

More knowledge can be best gained by good training.

2. Confidence based upon learning good ideas.

There are many bad ideas, bad theories and falsehoods floating around.

It is important to distinguish good ideas from bad ones.

Unfortunately, it takes many hours of searching to distinguish the good from the bad ideas, which is why it is important to get your training from the right people.

You cannot rely on your friends or colleagues to give you good advice, because many of them have ideas that are worse than yours.

Instead, you need to find an expert in the management training field; one who has spent many years sifting through the literature and who has sorted the good ideas from the bad, and is ready, willing and able to train you.

For the same reason why athletes have trainers, nutritionists and psychologists to assist them in their preparations, you need the advice of an expert.

You would greatly benefit from sourcing your training from a provider who has many years of experience in training leaders and managers.

Corporate Coach Training will save you many months of trial and error learning. We will lead you straight to the good ideas, and we will show you how to put them into practice.

This knowledge will help you improve your self-concept.

3. Confidence comes from good training.

Just as a normal person would lose in a race against a highly trained athlete, so anyone would lose in any competition against a highly trained competitor.

Why? Because winners win BEFORE the event.

The winners win in the weeks, days and hours of preparation they invest before the event.

Winning is a function of preparation and training.

So, if you want to improve your confidence, you need to prepare yourself by proper training, which is based upon good ideas.

4. Confidence based upon high self-concept.

The self-concept is the sum of all the thoughts, feelings and beliefs that you have about who you are, and where you fit, in the social hierarchy.

People with good self-esteem, think well of themselves and have a realistic view of their abilities and potential.

People with low levels of self-esteem, have an unrealistic, negative, (or over-inflated) view of their abilities and potential.

You always act in accordance with your self-concept:

  • If you think you are a loser, you will lose.
  • If you think you are a winner, you will win.

Your self-image is changeable.

You can improve it by using the methods shown above:

  • Gaining new knowledge
  • Learning true ideas
  • Taking great training
