Becoming Authentically Confident does not mean that you will be free of insecurities. Rather, it means that you can become comfortable with and effectively manage your moments of insecurity and uncertainty. You can learn to do this. There is a set of practices and skills that you can apply. When you develop these skills, your relationships with your fears and unhelpful emotions will change. Instead of being held back by them, they become a source of positive energy that can help you to achieve what matters most to you. And that is what gives you true authentic confidence.

Playbook of practices and exercises

In this book we bring the science and practices behind all of this together, with a specific focus on the context of work. We provide you with a playbook of practices and exercises that you can immediately integrate into your daily life. We include insights from leading experts in the field of psychology, neuroscience, leadership development and organisational behaviour. We complement this with the experiences and stories of professionals and senior leaders from a variety of backgrounds. Empower yourself, support your health and well-being and learn how to be okay with moments of insecurity and uncertainty and become Authentically Confident!
