Feb 22nd, 2017 by answersfromleadership
Joel Boggess knows a thing or two about building confidence as a leader. As the host of the ReLaunch Podcast and best-selling author of Finding Your Voice, Joel helps leaders around the world improve their confidence and live the life they were meant to.
I’m excited to have Joel on the show to share how you can increase your confidence and lead well.
How would you describe leadership?
Leadership is being clear on your best features and enduring qualities and leading with them. Let those features and qualities take the forefront.
We use the different qualities we have in our leadership toolbox. As leaders, we hone and develop those tools over time. We do that by steeping ourselves in the best leadership resources we can find.
What role does confidence have in leading?
Confidence is a primary role. You can’t lead others if you can’t lead yourself. And if you’re not confident in who you are and who God has created you to grow into, your responsibility is to become a better, more powerful version of yourself.
How can a leader become more confident?
The answer is so obvious it’ll probably hit you square between the eyes. I know it’s done that to me.
That is to understand what you bring to the table as far as your strengths, your skills, your abilities and then being able to harness those in the best way possible.
