Leaders get where they are by being competent and confident. In certain situations projecting confidence and authority is necessary -- for example, in a crisis, when a time-sensitive project is behind schedule, or when rallying the troops behind a new initiative.

But sometimes too much confidence can backfire, by shutting down contributions by the people on your team.

In this program you'll learn:

  1. Why too much confidence can shut down contributions by the people on your team

    1. When it's important for a leader to appear capable and confident and when it's important to dial it back

      1. Behavioral cues of confidence that managers use both consciously and unconsciously

      This "Quick Take" training module is:

      Short – just about 5 minutes long – so even your most impatient managers will watch it

      Focused - It delivers a single “aha” that will change behavior

      Perfect for both team and individual training sessions.

      This training kit includes:

      • The 5 minute video learning module
      • Handouts for following along and taking notes
      • Discussion Guide to help direct meaningful follow up conversation and reinforce the message
      • Summary Sheet participants can hang by their desks for quick review
      • Quiz  to reinforces the training and allows you to track how well people internalized the concept
