What is the role of self-confidence in leadership? Why is it so important?
At the end of the day, leadership is about having the confidence to decide and implement actions and decisions. If a leader is afraid to commit to decisions, all the efforts of communication and team empowerment won’t make a squat of difference.
Leadership without confidence is like building a structure on a weak foundation.
