Engaging with Confidence

In order to successfully challenge our customers with new ideas and insights, we have to develop the personal confidence and credibility to engage them and build their receptivity to our consulting with them.

To help us, we can draw on emotional intelligence, professional coaching concepts, and the wisdom of great leaders, such as the great Vince Lombardi.

This four minute video looks at what drives confidence and how we can prepare our teams (and ourselves!) to engage with this new model.

How do you define confidence? What do you do to give it to your teams?

Please share your ideas, and join the conversation.
