The Power of Personality Workshop

There's an associate on my team who is super bright but lacks confidence when they really shouldn't! How can leaders empower more junior employees esp those who are more timid?

In my experience, some juniors lack confidence because they know they don’t know it all, and are insecure with their inexperience. Give them more responsibilities and opportunities to lead, and celebrate wins. Give them some decision making power, even on small things. Have them teach something to others. Studies show that helping others learn and succeed builds your own confidence. Set goals by having them define 3 adjectives that they want their presence to exude. Facing up to their development needs will help them understand what to focus on to get better. If you really want to invest, send them to a professional coach to work on their confidence.
