There are some things that you just know. Confidence is one of those things. We know it when we see it. No there is no confidence behavior rather there are a number of behaviors that tell us that a person is confident. Most leaders I have known have exuded confidence. They were not arrogant, not cocky, just self assured confident in the direction they were going.
Behaviors that together say confident.
- eye contact
- upright posture
- firm handshake
- clear voice patterns (no hesitance)
- laughter (not self conscious)
- Measured yet prompt response to questions
- easy clear explanations
- demonstrated empathy
Of course there are others. What have you seen that confidence looks like?
