Confidence is a belief in one’s ability to succeed. It comes from within and must be nurtured. A healthy level of confidence leads to the capacity to overcome fear, which can result in growth and accomplishment.
A low confidence level can come from something as simple as a lack of experience and expertise in a particular subject or task. When this happens, it is necessary to identify the knowledge and skills needed to progress. This is where the support of others comes in.

When the direct report receives the level of support they need, their confidence in that area increases.
