Confidence – From the Old to the New (Part 3 of 3)

The new confidence is freeing. The new confidence declares independence from the ego. A leader of people is someone conscious of her own values. This is an individual who first finds approval in her own core. Respect for others is founded on a healthy respect for self. She is a willing participant in the flow, seeing all experience as a learning opportunity.

The ego is being starved; in relinquishing the need to control she is opening up to a more full experience. It is all about others. Her focus on others is pure because of the faith she has that she will be okay. The active value of courage keeps her attention active in the present. Confidence is accepted as a validating outcome of a present moment focus. Feelings are honored and decisions are made on the facts. And most powerfully, she does not judge others because she does not judge herself.

The new confidence is powerful not because it focuses on others, but because of why it focuses on others. A leader in this new confidence is able to effectively focus on others because of the assurance this improvisational leader has in her foundational authenticity.

About Jeff Brunson

In this whirling 21st Century the individual needs to embrace the authentic self and confidently leverage the energy and power found there. As we entered the 21st Century, I became more concerned about what leaders like you needed for successful influence and personal fulfillment. As we move deeper into this challenging 21st Century, I’m more convinced than ever that the core of my work is in helping individual leaders remember who they are − a trueness. It is about confidence found in your authenticity.
