If you struggle to be confident in the workplace, these tips can improve not only your overall work ethic but also the quality of work you create.
1. Mind your language. Instead of littering your sentences with timid phrases like “I might be wrong but,” speak strongly by starting with “I think.”
2. Share your opinion. If you are shy, try saying something at the very start of a meeting, even if it’s just pre-meeting small talk.
3. Know that you can do your job. Set realistic standards, stay over-prepared and create a running list of your achievements. You will feel much better.
