Do you keep telling yourself ‘the time’s not right?’
‘I’m too busy’
‘Things are too uncertain’
‘I’ll get round to it when……’
If you didn’t sign up for my Lead with Confidence in Challenging Times programme back in May there might be a good reason.
I get it.
It’s not for everyone
I’m not for everyone.
That’s as it should be.
The first group have nearly completed the programme now and every single one of the group has made big steps.
Like Shona Drummond who says:
‘As a result of working with Lynn on this programme, I have been given a 3 month project to lead on which is at a more senior level to mine AND I’m applying for more senior roles. Something I’d been holding back on. This has boosted my confidence and belief in myself no end’.
Or Susie Burdekin who says:
'I’ve been able to put myself 'out there’ more and raise my profile in my industry....
In my experience there are two main reasons why people don’t reach their full potential in life (whatever that means for them).
It’s rarely down to a lack of intelligence, experience or knowledge.
It is partly down to a lack of self-confidence and self-belief. (That won’t surprise you).
But it’s also a lack of ability to take specific action to start to build that confidence. (Because one of those limiting beliefs we often hold is ‘I’ll wait until I’m more confident and then I’ll do x, y or z’).
We see our lack of confidence as such a big ‘thing’ but actually it isn’t. (Only in our heads).
You can work on those beliefs and you can take small actions at the same time. The key word here is small.
You don’t have to leap out of your comfort zone all the time. You can tiptoe.
And consistency pays off.
Your confidence – with a good dose of humility - empowers others. The ripple effect that it can create is...
If confidence is the thing that holds you back and you want to change this in 2020 I’m your gal.
I’ve had to work on this stuff so much myself over the years and I’ve supported dozens of leaders like you to build their confidence so that they’re happier, more focused and ultimately better leaders.
If I can do it and they can do it then you can do it too. (No magic wands, elves or unicorns required).
I wish you a very happy Christmas and a confident 2020.
P.S. My Lead with Confidence programme launches early in the New Year. The price? About the same as a quality one day training course but with focused content, ongoing support and accountability. +++ PLUS no need to venture out into the freezing cold, sit in an airless corporate box or drink stewed tea. Intrigued? Email me at [email protected] and I’ll let you know when we’re launching.
