This episode was inspired by some confidence questions a listener asked me recently – I thought they were such good questions that many others would want to hear the answers, and so this episode was born! Confidence is something from which we can all benefit, and this is particularly true for managers. Unfortunately, so many managers are under-confident, which leads not only to stress for themselves, but also for their teams. But it doesn’t have to be this way! Join me for this special episode where we take a look at some basic confidence tools managers can use (and if you think you are not a manager so this doesn’t apply, remember that we are ALL managers of our own lives). * What simple tasks can help someone to build up their confidence? * How can you change if you are extremely under confident in you own abilities? * How can you stop being continually fearful that you have done something wrong? * How do you stop worrying about what people will say?

As The Confidence Alchemist, he helps performers to transform their deepest fears into their greatest strengths.

He knows a thing of two about conquering fears and phobias and developing confidence – for far too many years he himself was painfully shy, crushingly lonely as a result, and his career hit its limits because of this.
