Perfectionism-Driven Fears

From Perfectionism-Driven Fears to Value and Self-Worth

— November 8, 2013 — Autos
Boosting confidence in a professional setting can be very challenging for many people and for a wide variety of reasons. There are so many personal and social factors that can impact one's self-esteem and this collection of speeches discusses a number of those reasons and theories.

Many of these speeches discuss ways to present yourself as a confident individual -- even if you don't actually possess a high self-esteem. Things like language and posture can have very significant impacts on the way colleagues and peers perceive you. Body language expert Amy Cuddy explains the ways how body positioning can make or break the way someone is perceived. She encourages her clients to adapt the "signature pose" -- even if it means faking it to make it. Over time, practicing confident body language can actually have a mental impact and boost overall empowerment.

Alternatively, the speech by Daniel Kahneman suggests that overconfidence can lead to poor decision-making and weak strategies among entrepreneurs. While optimism and perseverance are two admirable traits, the capacity to be realistic and honest with yourself needs to be glorified as well.

The talks on boosting confidence provide insight, advice and fascinating anecdotes for viewers.
