Ep #167: Talk Your Way to More Confidence

Women leaders often think they need to “feel” more confident before they can advance into higher levels of leadership.

But does waiting to feel confident actually create confidence?

Nope. Not at all. And here’s why.

When you constantly tell yourself that you need to “feel” more confident, what you’re really telling yourself is:

‘I’m not ready.’

I’m not ready to go for the promotion.

To show up powerfully to an interview.

To raise my hand and be included in the conversation.

And the truth is: confidence isn’t created by your feelings at all.

It’s created by your actions.

And you can create enormous amounts of confidence in yourself in an instant just by using your words.

So in this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I’m going to walk you through the words, sentences, and questions you can use in your conversations at work that will instantly help you create more confidence in yourself AND also appear more confident to the executive leadership team.

Sounds good?
