They use their words wisely, with respect & consideration >> they have no need for gossip or the need to drag others down to make themselves feel better. Women with confidence are too excited by their plans and dreams.
They don’t take anything personally >> women who lead confidently know that the only person they can control is themselves and they are not responsible for anyone else’s emotions or behaviors. You cannot control what others do, only how you respond.
They use their power for good instead of evil >> they know their strengths and capabilities and seek opportunities to make the world around them just a little better. They will mentor another woman in their team and helping her achieve her own goals.
They give credit where it is due >> confident female leaders won’t take credit for another’s success. They have more respect for themselves and others. They also celebrate the achievement of others and the satisfaction of having assisted others along the journey is more than enough. They support women and don’t compete with them.
They trust their instincts >> they are thorough and decisive and when they have made a decision, they stick to it. They don’t hesitate or second guess and this in turn instills confidence and motivates the team they lead.
They don’t lead to be liked >> confident leaders are not afraid to make tough decisions even though they may not be popular. They can handle opposition and will deal with it rationally and fairly, with the conviction to stand by any decision.
They learn from their mistakes >> they do not expect perfection from themselves. The ability to get up and get on with it after a setback keeps them moving forward and inspires others.
They believe in balance & reward >> working hard in the times of heavy workload is balanced with a break and reward for the team when the job is done. Confident women lead by example and put in the big hours when required but they are not afraid to celebrate, regroup and take a breather in preparation for the next challenge ahead.
They don’t waste time on worry >> worry changes nothing and is a waste of energy. They stay focused to move forward.
They are authentic >> it is central to female leaders with confidence. Understanding their own motivations and being clear in their belief system.
If you are unsure of yourself, people won’t listen. If you don’t believe in the course you set, then others won’t be motivated and inspired to follow you.
