During this meeting, the speaker asked the predominately-female audience to contribute feedback.  After a few people offered ideas, I stood up and spoke up with a reinforcing comment. I have learned that the annoying, negative voice sometimes has a seed of information that can be useful.  With this in mind, I sat down and observed how the other attendees did or didn’t respond.
During the meeting about 10% of the audience spoke up at one time or another.  One other person stood up when she spoke. This insight led me to think about how my clients and readers may benefit from executive coaching tips to help them build confidence.  Inspired by my experience, here is helpful advice to build your confidence and enhance your professional executive presence.
When I attend networking events, meetings, classes, or presentations, if I have something valuable to contribute, I make it a habit to participate. While attending events or meetings, it is a great opportunity to practice standing up and speaking out. If you feel uncomfortable doing this, practice gaining confidence in settings where there is little or no pressure.

Stop comparing yourself with any other person because each person is unique and have a distinctive set of skills and ideas.
Do you feel like you need a career transition or want to take your business to the next level?
The article highlights that less confident people are less arrogant and deluded so people generally prefer towork with them.
The research also says that less confident people pay attention to negative feedback and are self-critical to improve, they also are prepared to work harder and are more motivated towards their goals. The message I want you to walk away was beautifully summarized by psychologist Jean Twenge in her article for the BBC Does confidence really breed success?
Of course changing you career or trying to grow your business can be difficult but what’s crucial is that you need to believe you can do it. Tip: Money and fulfillment are magnetized towards confidence, so building your natural confidence in who you are is the essence of success. Once you know who are, you’ll be able to look for admirable traits in other people and model them.
Many success gurus advise that in order to become successful, you have to surround yourself by successful, inspiring and capable people.


Tip: You may have to attend training courses, talks or seminars to listen to people who succeeded in the face of opposition. Without those people who have persisted in the face of failure, life would be boring today. Before you can start your business, you need to first believe enough in yourself to make the decision, and take the action steps to grow it. Knowing who you are and modeling people who have already done it is essential, but what we often forget is taking action. From another perspective, as a professional public speaker, I appreciate when the audience engages. This shows that they are not confident enough and fear that they will be noticed by everyone. Comparing yourself with another person who appears to be successful than you may make you feel bad about yourself. Last week, we spoke about MK who made a huge (and successful) career transition in her 40s.
An example to illustrate this, was this week I was playing a role play in an Insead Global MBA course called Your First Hundred Days and all the role players feedback was that…. Being decisive is one of the biggest assets to success in business, life and relationships. You will have to step away from who you were, what you did in the past in order to open up the doors of possibility. No matter how much you think a decision through, without action, you will never see the endless possibilities until you take the next step. Note, it’s not about becoming just like them, but rather modelling their traits that inspire success.
That means that you must focus most of your interactions on people who inspire you; people who have achieved success already and those who are working, like you, to achieve success. It may mean that you have to step out of your comfort zone and start meeting people who share your desire to succeed.
Or when they do speak, they timidly raise their hand, speak softly and make a comment without seizing the moment to be memorable. Not only does this build your courage muscle, it gives you practice silencing your inner chicken. It shows that you are not enthusiastic about what you do and creates and impression that you don’t consider yourself important.


You can also scribble down your strengths, weakness, and goals and read it aloud in front of a mirror. If this is the case, just recollect your past successes and achievements and convince yourself that you are good at that. Lack of goal in life will leave you passive, letting life to go by its own, not knowing what to do next. Using positive affirmations will help you get out of the thought that you are not good at anything. Unless you respect yourself, how will others respect you?  Always believe that you have a unique set of talents and abilities which no other person has. Human beings are very adaptable and even if you make the wrong decision you can use the lesson to do the right thing. It’s almost impossible to launch a successful business and not changing (for the better) along the way. If you have spent a lot of time in the past doing what others wanted you to do, your unhappiness is probably partly to blame on their faulty assessments of what would work for you and what wouldn’t. If you’ve heard of the Law of Attraction, you will know that there is scientific evidence to back up the fact that your beliefs transmit electrical energy throughout your body, which determines the frequency at which your body resonates and attracts the same frequency in opportunities and experiences. This does not imply that you blow away all your hard-earned cash on clothing but whenever you purchase, pick up fancy, stylish cloths. If you are one of those, be bold enough to sit in front next time and encounter the situation.
This is not to imply we need to be blatantly self-promoting, stealing the spotlight or speaking when we have nothing to say.  It is important to be judicious. Do not walk slowly because it creates an impression that you are always lethargic and lack enthusiasm. When you don’t know who you are, you face the unnecessary pressure of living up to some image you aspire to, rather than living a life that inspires you to do even more.
