Let me share with you a terrific web-site opening up
good dialog on the elements of leadership.
There are several guides and models of leadership.
We intend on covering some. One of the common
ingredients is confidence. Confidence can come
- practicing a skill of which one is passionate,
- being proud, yet humble, about what you have done,
- assuming responsibility, by owning difficulties,
commiting to complete things and sharing successes.
Eugene Raudsepp called “being proud, yet humble”–
self-esteem and it is a reflection of one’s self-image.
Self image “gives people the power to survive … defeats”.
It has a certain “prescriptive power”, as we are limited
by our dreams and aspirations.
“Strong self esteem can help you advance.”
Raudsepp offers compelling prescriptions for building
one’s self esteem that are valuable to highlight:
Deal with failure, disapointments, self-limiting
Observe, study and adopt habits of people who
demonstrate a humble, yet high self-worth
Increase energy, focus and awareness of what
can be done better.
