Fine line…

There’s a fine line between confidence and arrogance.  Many senior leaders worry their confidence may be perceived incorrectly, especially those used to proudly wearing a warrior’s uniform.

That fine line is drawn by a person’s willingness to learn.  Those who are willing to learn are perceived as confident; those who know it all are perceived as arrogant.  Want to ensure those around you see confidence?  Display a little humility, and willingness to learn from others.  It’s like magic fairy dust…and BONUS! it inspires the confidence of team mates when they realize they’re trusted to teach you.
