Leader Effectiveness: Closing The Confidence Gap

Leader Effectiveness: Closing The Confidence Gap Interview with Robbie WallsToday, there is a particular crisis for women—a vast confidence gap that separates the sexes. Compared with men, women don’t consider themselves as ready for promotions, they predict they’ll do worse on tests, and they generally underestimate their abilities across the board. A growing body of evidence shows just how devastating this lack of confidence can be. In fact, it turns out that confidence predicts success much more than competence. No wonder that women, despite all our progress, are still woefully underrepresented at the highest levels. Overqualified and overprepared, too many women still hold back on seeking opportunities. Women feel confident only when they are perfect. Or practically perfect. The good news is that with work, confidence can be acquired. This means that the confidence gap, in turn, can be closed.[caption id="attachment_6283" align="alignleft" width="300"]Robbie Walls[/caption]Robbie Walls is the founder of The Walls Speak, author of 180* Momentum, and co-author in The Power of the Platform.
