Lack of confidence holds people back, especially women. Men apply for a job when they meet only 60% of the qualifications, but women only apply if they meet 100% of them. Men initiate salary negotiations four times as often as women do, and that when women negotiate, they ask for 30 percent less money than men do. In multiple studies, men overestimate their abilities and performance, and women underestimate both; yet men's and women's performance does not differ in quality.
What would you do if you thought you could not fail? Would you face and overcome your fears? Would you test the limits of your capabilities? Would you approach challenges as opportunities to learn?
We will explore some typical confidence roadblocks encountered by women during this interactive program, and we'll begin to apply new tools for breaking through those roadblocks!
By the end of the session, the participants will be able to:
• Describe the importance of confidence in their lives
• List common roadblocks that inhibit confidence
• Apply three or more tools to strengthen confidence
