Course description

Having confidence can help us build a successful and full life. It gives us the courage to take on new challenges and step outside our comfort zone. Our self-confidence can change a little from day to day. Building self-confidence is a process.

Here’s what we’ll cover in this course. We’ll:

  • Explore what confidence is and what it feels like
  • Learn about how low confidence can hold us back at work and in life
  • Develop tools to help build our self-confidence over time
