Credibility at work

How to improve your confidence and credibility

executing strategy

How credible are you at work? How credible is your function?.

Are you the type of person that others seek out when they need something important done? Or do you find yourself ignored or over looked? Do you lack the confidence you need to inspire trust in others?

Credibility begins with you. If you don't have confidence in yourself, then you can't expect others to have confidence in you. Our first article provides 6 steps on how to be confident at work.

How do you turn your personal confidence into credibility for your function? Our second article provides 6 steps for enhancing the credibility of an OD or HR function.

Sometimes confidence comes from having a clear vision of where you are going, as well as clearly defined roles. We introduce 2 new OD interventions into our member zone to help leaders to get their teams to understand their vision, and to clarify team roles.

We hope that these tools and thoughts will help you to develop confidence in yourself and your function.
