Event Details

If we spend enough time thinking about confidence, how we would feel and what we would do if we had more of it, we almost invariably end up describing with great accuracy the appearance of someone we admire when they are operating at peak performance. This confusion between what is and what seems to be is one of the biggest barriers when it comes to developing our own sense of confidence.

Derived from two Latin words; con (with) and fidere (faith), this etymology underpins a hypothesis that confidence is a state that occurs only as a result of something else.

The workshop argues that exploring this hypothesis may help clarify at least some of the confusion about what it is, whilst helping us move towards creating it. The workshop guides participants through an exploration and articulation of the problem. Then, by engaging in some reverse engineering, participants are encouraged to construct the framework through which they are better able to build a sense of confidence.

This workshop will be delivered on Zoom. A url will be sent in a calendar invite 5 working days in advance.
