I always thought someone was either confident or not, and it wasn't really until quite recently that I realized that there are techniques you can adopt to improve your confidence. In December I completed an MBA at Cranfield University. It was a two year part-time course (completed whilst also working) and I attended lectures every other weekend. In addition to amassing a wealth of leadership and business management knowledge, it was an amazing journey of self discovery through exploring my preferred personality and leadership types. As you would expect there was a long list of recommended books to read, but one particularly resonated. Amy Cuddy's "Presence". If you want to learn some techniques to ensure you present your very best self I can definitely recommend reading this book. It is supported by research but is quite an easy read.
