If there is one trait that most people are after, it is confidence. What goes with confidence is competence which many fail to recognise. Coming from a space of being a subject matter expert in changing mindsets, I can say for sure that it is much easier to access confidence than most people think.
So, if you are in the wrong job you are obviously going to lack competence in it. This is a big sign to speak to HR or your boss. Ask for a job move into something that makes your heart sing. Something that comes naturally to you. There is nothing worse than dragging your feet in to work daily and detesting every minute of it.
It could also be that you once had confidence and it has waned due to a bad boss who has put you down continually. Being human, there is a high tendency to believe the boss and allow self-confidence to seep out of you.
These are self-management tools that I teach at an NLP for workcourse. As NLP is used for creating a future, a big part of tools shared, centre around managing states of mind for different contexts. Why you may wonder?
Well, if you are able to change your state, you then change behaviour. Most organisations focus on markers to improve productivityas that obviously comes from heightened motivation and increases revenue. When employees know how to be confident at work, they automatically improve productivity and feel good about creating a future that they want.
Here are some tips to be confident at work;
Create a confident state for use at will, anytime you need it. This is easy enough to do and very valuable to have in your back pocket, for situations when they arise. This could make you feel like an Incredible Hulk at the time when you access this state.
Find your voice by perhaps singing in the bathroom when in a shower. Many people have thoughts but do not speak up. This opening of your voice channel will have you speak more easily. Singing classes would help here too.
Offer to take on projects if you feel that your lack of confidence stems from not knowing your job well enough. Step into the other person’s shoes and also from an observer perspective, to enrich your point of view. This helps create a more wholistic view.
Identify any beliefs that hinder you from being that confident person. Attend an NLP for work course that will help you eradicate these and replace them with more empowering beliefs. This will help boost confidence levels too.
Confidence is a fundamental trait that impacts every aspect of life. From something immediate like securing a job to a more long term goal like creating a future that you want.
With such tremendous impact, it is fundamental to learn skills of how to be confident at work. These skills are central to;

To accelerate your search for these skills, an NLP for work online course would provide the nuts and bolts of how to be confident at work. While many feel that it is a long hard road, it really isn’t.
Working with the whole person helps clear emotional blockages that are the hindrance to be confident at work. One links to the other hence the individual is able to improve productivity, creating a future that they want.
Like a domino effect, everything sits at the source, and once dismantled, has the effect of unfolding building blocks to re-organise and shape for better results. As an individual gains confidence, they also begin to deepen their sense of self and therefore their identity. This is crucial to creating a future that is successful.
High achievers know where they are going and use critical skills to make things happen. In my work with organisations, I have taught NLP for work skills to high achieving teams. To see their success catapult is the greatest sense of fulfilment anyone could have.
