As a professional in the workforce, it is vital to move past building capabilities and technical knowledge, to boosting your confidence.

In fact, most successful leaders usually display what's known as honest overconfidence.

Learning Outcomes

In this engaging session, Amanda will examine:

What science tells us about confidence,

  • Competence and success
  • Some fun differences between male and female brain biology and how that sometimes gets in the way
  • Socialisation and other influences that might keep us from playing our ‘leadership game’

What you can do about it!

Facilitated by: Amanda Blesing
