Whether you’ve been in your role for a while, or you’re starting a new job and getting acclimated, there’s always room to improve your confidence at work. Here are some pointers:
1. Cut out self-deprecating language: I know, easier said than done, but being kinder to ourselves in moments of stress can do wonders for self-esteem.
2. Ask questions: The more you practice speaking up and asserting yourself, the easier it will become over time.
3. Leave work at work: De-stressing when you’re off the clock will enable you to start the next day more energized and ready for the tasks at hand.
