Something that plagues managers from time to time - self-doubt.Feb 17, 2023
Today, I want to chat about something that plagues managers from time to time - self-doubt. Yep, that's right, that little voice in your head that says, "You can't do it!" or "Who do you think you are to lead a team?" But the truth is, self-doubt is actually a crucial part of being a good manager.
Now, I know what you're thinking, "What? How can self-doubt be a good thing?" Well, let me explain. When you doubt yourself, it means you care. You care about doing a good job, leading your team to success, and making the right decisions. It shows that you're not arrogant or overconfident, and that's a good thing.
But there's a catch - you can't let self-doubt take over. It's all about finding a balance between confidence and humility. You need to believe in yourself and your abilities while also recognizing that you don't have all the answers. This is where seeking advice from colleagues or mentors can be helpful.
Self-doubt can also help you stay motivated and continuously improve. When you doubt your abilities, it can be a driving force to work harder, learn more, and be better. So, don't let self-doubt hold you back, let it push you forward.
Self-doubt plays a significant role in managerial performance, but it's all about finding a balance. Use it as a motivator to work harder, learn more, and be better, but don't let it take over. Believe in yourself, seek advice when needed, and keep pushing forward.
