Balancing humility and confidence as a leader can sometimes feel like you're trying to hit a moving target.

Too much confidence and you risk coming off as arrogant; too much humility, and you might appear ineffective. It's a classic leadership dilemma but fear not, mastering this balance is definitely achievable. โœ”๏ธ

Letting either trait dominate can lead to issues. An overabundance of confidence can alienate your team, while excessive humility may cause your leadership impact to diminish.


Here are some strategies to help you strike the right balance:

โฆฟ Mindful Leadership Practices: Engage in mindfulness to maintain a level-headed approach, ensuring your leadership style is neither overbearing nor underwhelming.

โฆฟ Peer Support Groups: Participate in forums like our monthly Extreme Leadership Acceleratorยฎ where you can exchange ideas and receive feedback from fellow leaders.

โฆฟ Leadership Coaching: Consider personalized coaching to finely tune your ability to project confidence while maintaining humility.

By focusing on these areas, you can enhance your workplace environment, attract skilled team members, and elevate your effectiveness as a leader.

Over the past two decades, I have dedicated myself to leadership retention and employee development, guiding individuals and teams for multiple Fortune 200 companies in multiple industries, as well as government and non-profits, on a transformative journey toward enhancing their leadership skills, to retain and attract the top talent they need.

Using my proprietary "L.O.V.E. system", we take a journey together to understand your unique strengths that we can capitalize on, and see if there are any behaviors that may have once served you well, but no longer do.

We then define a plan to improve your strengths and mitigate those behaviors that may be inhibiting your growth and effectiveness. When leaders are highly effective, employees thrive and want to stay with the company, and also recruit others to join the company!
