Even the greatest leaders lack self-confidence. To build yours, firstly you need to act the part. Your body language should scream self-assuredness, so remember to keep your head held high. Secondly, it’s important that you dress with confidence because let’s face it, when you look better you feel better. To come across as confident, speak assertively, avoiding ums and ahs. This may mean planning ahead what you need to say to people. Taking action is another important step when building confidence so make a plan and tackle it head on before celebrating your great results.
