If you struggle with confidence or competence as a coach, it can feel like your dream business won’t succeed. But it’s really not a problem to have some feelings of uncertainty. Your self-assurance can always be improved. Just the act of engaging in bettering yourself and your business proves you have some level of confidence. You need only to build on that. When it comes to competence, it’s no different. You can build your knowledge. You can improve your skills. 

But how do you know if you’ve got too much of one and not enough of the other? Somewhere in the midst of mixing confidence and competence, lies the ‘magic sauce’ of coaching everyone wants. In this episode, I discuss this necessary -- and achievable -- balance. 

 What You’ll Learn Confidence -- your level of self-assurance
  • Self-worth: Recognizing what you believe your inherent value is (and where it comes from)
  • Self-esteem: Admitting what you believe others think about you (and how much you’re relying on that)
  • Self-confidence: Identifying your assurance in your abilities and capabilities (and where you feel less sure)
  • How to take stock and use your stronger areas to both improve your weaker ones and grow your business
  • Competence -- your level of skills, knowledge and expertise
  • Driven by confidence, determination and commitment
  • Approach 1: Fake it ‘til you make it -- jumps right in, relying on confidence
  • Approach 2: Perfection delay -- holding back indefinitely
  • Approach 3: Building and working where you are -- while increasing your skills
  • Identify specific areas you need to master and areas you’ve already mastered
  • The ‘Magic Sauce’ of mixing confidence and competence
  • How each propels you forward in boldness toward the other
  • How to improve each quality using specific actions
  • How to step into belief
