Leaders Must Show Confidence in Their People
Leaders to be effective as leaders must show confidence in their people. This is a wide ranging factor having a direct relationship to success. These leaders show and share their confidence. They show their confidence in their abilities and decisions. And they share and show their confidence in their people.
So how does a leader share and show confidence in their people? First, there is a mental law called the Law of Expectations. This law states that whatever is expected will be delivered. While this is a difficult thing for some people to get their minds around, it happens everyday in real life situations. Unfortunately, this law works two ways – positive or negative. It is important to focus upon the results we want by using positive thoughts supported by a strong belief, then the desired result will happen.
A positive thought supported by a weak or conflicting belief will hinder the people involved in gaining a positive result. The lack of a belief is the same as having a negative belief and must be watched in both our talk and thoughts.
True confidence is shown as support and TRUST in our people. A true leader will show this confidence to their team on a regular and consistent basis. One method used is to tell individuals – “I believe in You.” This simple statement goes to the heart of the individual and usually drives a desire to perform well.
Another method to use is to ask others about their opinions and thoughts on issues that are important and then listen to their response, asking questions for clarity and thanking them for sharing. Again, this simple action shows trust in the person or group. Trust goes a long way to gaining confidence and delivering in their personal performance.
Show your confidence and support your teams using trust and confidence in their performance to get excellent results. If you need coaching or support in personal leadership you can contact us at 901-757-4434.
