Leading the Confident Team

If you are not confident in yourself , as leader, then the team is likely to sense your doubts and their confidence in their own roles within the team will be eroded. Each team member needs to believe in themselves and in their abilities so that all can contribute fully. Self-confidence can be described as a positive mix of self-efficacy (respect for your own competence) and self-esteem (valuing yourself). The good news is that confidence is largely learned and with support it can be acquired by anyone.
