Building Confidence as a New Leader: Discussion on May 10

Last updated April 5, 2022

Connect with new leaders across higher education to overcome self-doubt.


The internal barriers new leaders face when starting a new role or project can hold them back from being successful. Negative self-talk, the inability to accept praise, and feedback that is based on your identity rather than your actions can all hinder your ability to make decisions and lead others. Join us for a one-hour discussion where we’ll strategize ways to work through your fears and difficulties with leadership.

Who should attend?

Attendees of our recent live training, Building Confidence as a New Leader: Overcoming Internal Barriers, or those who have viewed the recording will benefit most from this discussion opportunity. Leaders who are new to their roles or who have recently transitioned to a new and higher level of responsibility will also find it relevant.

Although it is not necessary to watch the recorded training before attending this discussion, we recommend that you do so in order to make the most of the experience.

Case Study Review

You will respond to a case study from the Building Confidence as a New Leader workbook in a small group to get the discussion started.


Group Discussion

You will reflect on what strategies you can use to build confidence in your leadership ability and reprogram your negative self-talk. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to discuss the challenge of accepting and giving praise. Finally, you will be able to dive deeper into building confidence when feedback you receive might be due to factors beyond your control (such as your race, gender, status as a parent, etc.).
