How to Protect Your Confidence
Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
- The number one thing you must protect as a Builder is your confidence.
- Unfortunately, leadership actually sets you up for a crisis of confidence because it teaches that you must “fake it before you make it.” Doing so doesn’t build real confidence; it erodes it.
- Real confidence comes when you are passionate about your purpose, have a surefire way to handle objections, can anticipate and deal with your obstacles, and develop a plan based in reality that is flexible enough to handle any challenges along the way.
The number one thing you need to protect as a builder is your confidence. That's because your confidence is constantly under attack by plans that don't work, teachers who resist you at every turn, challenges that feel insurmountable, and work that constantly expands.
What can you do when it feels as if you are carrying the weight of your entire school or district on your back? How can you maintain your sense of purpose when you get pushback on every side? How can you stick to your plan when you face new obstacles every day? How can you trust your plan with a staff that doesn't have the will or skill to see it through?
