Stop Judging Yourself

When new leaders get promoted the initial high wears off and eventually there’s a dip where doubt takes over and confidence takes a nosedive.

Here’s what to do when the self-doubt threatens your confidence.

1. Remind yourself that there’s a learning curve to effective leadership.
2. Remember, you don’t have to know it all.
3. Seek out mentoring to help you make confident decisions.
4. Managing conflict is one of the most important skills to learn, even managing your internal conflict that keeps you on the hamster wheel.

Rewrite the narrative that says you don’t belong as a leader. If you’re not confident about your current level of growth and have yet to build your capacity or credibility, that’s called learning!


I have several courses on the LinkedIn Library that can help you gain the skills and confidence you need to elevate your leadership, as well as my book, From Conflict to Courage. Check these out!
