What Julie DeLucca-Collins can say in an interview on
Achieving More Confidence in the Workplace:
In these times of uncertain times, we are dealing with a lot of unknowns. This can create a feeling of unease that can cause us to become stressed, unfocused, and overwhelmed. When we experience these feelings we lose confidence in ourselves and in the areas that matter like our work. Women, in particular, are generally overburdened with work and home responsibilities. The shift in routines can cause many women to feel scattered and not prioritize or accomplish key work-related tasks. Here’s four ways to achieve more confidence at work during these challenging times:
- Learn how to overcome inner criticism by practicing self-compassion. The job of our inner critic is to attack and undermine you to protect you from the shame of failure. People with a strong inner critic tend to have one thing in common: However great their success, they don’t feel it’s genuine. Self-compassion has also proven to be a useful tool to fight self-criticism. When we hear the voice saying we’re inferior or deficient, find evidence to the contrary, and treat yourself with the grace you would give someone else in the same situation.
- Let go of what is beyond your control, knowing that we can only control our thoughts and actions. Many people stress and lose confidence when they try to control the uncontrollable. In our current circumstances of the pandemic, focusing on what you can manage and reminding yourself that we can figure out issues and things that arise will help you be more focused on the present. Spending energy in what may or may not happen takes you away from successfully doing your job. Do what you do best, and celebrate your wins.
- Boost your confidence by practicing and mastering new skills. Our brains have a tendency to seek the comfort of the familiar. During this time of Covid-19, we are being placed in situations where we are learning new technology, routines, and how to navigate our world in different ways. Remind yourself that mastery of a new skill is not an overnight process. We are all beginners, and the more that we practice a new skill the better we will be and feel about it.
- Be okay with change and find support to lean on. Change is one of the certainties in life. The more we resist it, the more we will spend our energy fighting it. Remember that this is a global pandemic and everyone is navigating this new normal. Be open to sharing your experiences and feelings with others. Sometimes our minds create stories that seem real but are baseless. Speak to your colleagues, friends, and family about what you are experiencing. This will normalize your feelings and you will not feel alone. You may also find that others have found ways to successfully navigate similar situations.
