The Confidence Cycle: How to unlock the most confident version of yourself

With the future changing faster than ever before and uncertainty everywhere we look, we must realize that the skills that got us here today are not the same skills that will help us get to where we’re going next. Today, we need to build a new skill set that will allow us to realize and experience the best version of ourselves so that we can thrive through tomorrow and every day after. This skill set must be rooted in confidence; the foundation of growth, learning, and development. Whether we like it or not, uncertainty isn’t going away. Instead of wishing for more certain times, let’s create more certain people. The question is how.

By developing the unwavering confidence to thrive in any environment, we can show up with unwavering confidence. Amidst the uncertainty, we can show up fully engaged and ready to conquer whatever is in our way. Even though things feel like they are falling apart and sliding through our fingers we need to realize that we have the power to make them fall into place.

A Culture of Confidence: Helping Leaders Inspire High Performing Teams

It’s no secret that the world today is moving faster than it ever has and only a fraction of the speed that it will in the future. As a result, confidence is at an all time low. We don’t know how to deal with the overwhelming diversity of opinions, rapid change, and uncertainty around every corner, which is causing a Confidence Crisis like we’ve never seen before. Traditional leadership methods where we point and demand are no longer effective, leaving people feeling disengaged and uninspired. Today requires leaders who can inspire confidence and pave a path towards a more positive future. Uncertainty is fast. Confidence is faster.

Leadership expert Juan Bendana has spent a decade helping category leading companies thrive through uncertainty, inspiring unwavering confidence in themselves and their teams. Through actionable tools and evidence-based strategies, Juan helps leaders bring the best version of themselves to work and to their teams every day so that they can unlock the full potential of the people around them because they want to give their best, not because they feel like they have to.

If we want a more motivated and connected organization, it’s going to come from improving culture only if we first inspire confidence. What most leaders miss is that we can’t inspire confidence in your people if we don’t build it ourselves first. Only until we take care of ourselves first and develop our own confidence, will we be able to bring others along with us. Too often, leaders are subconsciously creating self-doubt amongst their people, affecting their confidence and ultimately their performance. When we inspire confidence, we elevate performance. In other words, the higher the confidence, the better the leader.

Juan Bendana will take your audience through a harrowing journey of how a leader can build their own confidence first, develop the confidence of their team and ensure that despite the world changing faster than it ever has before, your team will be able to confidently navigate the inevitable challenges of life and business, be better than they have ever been, and take care of themselves along the way.
