Nurturing Self-Confidence

Self-confidence is being certain and trusting about yourself in regard to addressing certain tasks or all tasks. Self-confidence is critical to effective performance in the workplace and is the source of assertiveness, which is fully representing yourself (your opinions, recommendations, etc.) to others. One's self-confidence can be cultivated by using a variety of approaches, eg, ongoing success when performing tasks, ongoing support and affirmation from supervisors, successful coaching (from oneself and others) in the workplace, etc.

Self-esteem is a one's overall belief in their value as an individual, a human being. Thus, the concepts of self-esteem and self-confidence are closely related.
