如何提升自己在工作中的信心?请先回答这四个问题

Raquel Oden 2016年06月20日

无论身处哪个领域,信心最为重要,如果你在工作中犯错,又该如何恢复信心?

随着我在职业道路上的不断成长和进步,我发现了许多有助于提升信心的因素,而且对我自己和别人来说都有效。我的一条重要结论是不断挑战自我并且抓住可以让自身能力多元化、提高领导技能并拓宽人际网络的机会。“你长大了想成为什么样的人?”步入职业生涯后,我们都应该这样问自己。此外,以下四个问题会为我们的能力注入更多的价值和从容,并最终提升我们的信心。这四个问题是:

我要接纳风险吗?

我的指导者曾告诉我要“安于不安”。她鼓励我把自己推到安逸环境以外,以便了解新的职位,迎接新的挑战,并在职业道路上继续发展。抱负激发成长,成长又为抱负注入动力。如果我们接纳风险,而不是躲避它,我们就更有可能保持投入状态,学到更多东西并不断有所斩获。只要觉得犹豫或者没有把握,我就会告诉自己,风险能带来巨大回报。我承担的一些最大的风险对我的职业生涯和自身领导能力的发展产生了最积极的影响。

我要发挥长处吗?

人们往往擅长于自己最关心的东西。如果有一技之长,就不要掩饰!无论你是联络大客户的最佳人选,还是办公室里唯一知道怎样使用扫描仪的人,大家都会记住你的能力和自信,就算你的强项不是最有魅力的那种。

我要利用变化吗?

职场上的变化可能很难适应,而且许多人都害怕变化的场面屡见不鲜。然而,老员工离职,新员工上岗,以及新的部门或政策取得成果之时,正是展示能力和信心的最佳机会。反过来,如果经历的变化不够多,那你的首要任务就是跟上司谈谈,以确保自己处于成长状态。

我要承认自己的错误(并吸取教训)吗?

在工作中犯错会成为职业生涯中最打击信心的因素之一,但承认错误有助于我们下次把事情做对。为错误承担责任不仅是领导者应有的关键技能,它还是培养信心的绝佳途径。一旦你能得心应手地运用接受批评并且恢复过来的能力,你就会对担任项目或小组讨论负责人的问题不再犹疑。如果能承认自己的错误,而且是迅速承认,不瞻前顾后,然后再提出解决办法,人们就会重视你,而你也会获得自信。(财富中文网)

As I’ve continued to grow and evolve in my own career, I’ve seen a number of factors contribute to growth in confidence – both for myself and others. One key takeaway is to keep challenging yourself and taking opportunities that allow you to diversify your capabilities, strengthen your leadership skills and build a broader network. “What do you want to be when you grow up” is a question we should ask ourselves well into our careers. Below are four other questions to instill greater value and comfort in your own capabilities, and ultimately increase your confidence:

Am I embracing risk?

My mentor once told me to “be comfortably uncomfortable.” She encouraged me to push myself just beyond my comfort zone in order to learn new roles, meet new challenges, and continue to grow in my career. Ambition sparks growth, and growth re-energizes ambition. If we embrace risk instead of hiding from it, we’re more likely to stay engaged, learn more and continue to achieve. Whenever I feel hesitant or uncertain, I remind myself that risk can come with great reward. Some of the biggest risks I’ve taken have had the best impact on my career and leadership growth.

Am I playing to my strengths?

People tend to be good at what they care most about, and if you’re good at something, don’t hide behind it! Whether you’re the best at connecting with important clients, or you’re the only one in the office who knows how to use the scanner, people will remember your skill and your confidence. Even if your expertise isn’t the most glamorous.

Am I taking advantage of change?

Change in the workplace can be hard to adapt to, and all too often many of us fear it. Yet when employees leave, new hires come on, or new departments and policies come to fruition, these are the best opportunities to showcase your skills and confidence. On the other end of the spectrum, if you’re not encountering enough change, prioritize talking with your manager to make sure you’re on a growing trajectory.

Am I owning (and learning) from my mistakes?

Making a mistake at work can be one of the most confidence-depleting aspects of your career, but owning mistakes will help you get it right the next time. Not only is taking responsibility for mistakes a crucial skill to have for leadership roles, but it’s also a great way to build your poise. Once you can get comfortable with your ability to take the blame and recover, you’ll be less hesitant when it comes to taking the lead on projects or group discussions. If you can acknowledge your mistakes — quickly, not dwelling on them — and then propose solutions, people will value you, and you’ll believe in you.
