Learned Optimism is Serious Science: How to feel more confident

Learned Optimism is Seriously Good for You:  How to feel more confident

Many of us want to know how to feel more confident. Did you know that learned optimism is far from pie-in-the-sky thinking, and has big ties to confidence? Extensively researched, learned optimism is associated with many benefits, including improved mood, lowered anxiety and reduced depression. Here’s just some of the research on optimism:

  • The challenge-approach habit of optimism is associated with greater perceived social support and more frequent, higher-quality social interactions.  Even more, these habits lead people to exercise more, eat a healthier diet and refrain from smoking.
  • Uchino, B. (2009).  Understanding the Links Between Social Support and Physical Health: A Life-Span Perspective with Emphasis on the Separability of Perceived and Received Support. Perspectives on Psychological Science May 2009 vol. 4 no. 3 236-255.

Our top-rated Executive Presence Training teaches how to feel more confident, tools to look and feel powerful, and proactive mental habits that can powerfully boost success. The best news? It’s for everyone, not just executives.  

How to feel more confident: What is the confidence workshop like?

Have you ever noticed how some people – without saying a word – radiate a calm, commanding authority that automatically generates respect and high-performance?  You’ve seen it before: when these people walk in a room, everyone sits up a bit straighter, brushes off excuses, and gets down to business. These commanding individuals have a way of being that commands respect, creates top performance, cements relationships with key stakeholders – and generates continued loyalty and new growth.  Our Executive Presence Training shows each participant how to radiate similar levels of power, confidence and warm credibility. This creates buy-in and builds solid relationships. Because the power we teach becomes REAL – the effect is not a stiff, manufactured leadership persona. Instead, each participant re-kindles his/her own latent power and develops his/her own unique version of relational executive power.  And because the learned power is based on authenticity, people respond favorably. The way that we teach executive presence works. Even experienced senior and C-Suite leaders benefit from this training.
