It’s all about YOU this month. We have chosen to focus on confidence this month because if you want to get ahead in the workplace it is essential to have confidence. You might be a capable and well-liked employee but it will be harder for you to get noticed if you lack confidence.
This page has been created to give you some hints and tips on developing your confidence.
- your personal brand (the way people perceive you)
- your personal impact (the way people are influenced by you through your communication style)
- your personal image (the way people see you)
To understand more about personal brand and personal impact you could read the course outlines (see links in the sidebar). Alternatively, why don’t you speak to someone in your Human Resources or Learning and Development department about attending one of these confidence training courses?
