No matter how intelligent and skilled your employees are, if they lack confidence, they will continuously doubt their potential.
I have seen people in leadership positions take full advantage of someone’s insecurities for their own twisted agendas. It’s very disheartening, and I can only imagine what that person is feeling inside. Leadership is such a tremendous responsibility because you have the influence to help someone become the very best version of themselves and, in the process, make a profound impact on their life.
Why would anyone take this for granted, especially when you are dealing with people?
Building confidence, mentoring, and coaching takes time and energy. Still, it’s worth it, and if you can help somebody build their self-esteem and build their confidence, it will pay dividends for the person and the organization.
