What is ‘How to be Confident’?
How to Be Confident is a 2 hour class by The School of Life which takes place regularly in our virtual classroom over Zoom. It is one of 12 classes around our 4 core themes: Love, Work, Self and Culture.
Why should I attend?
There is a common misconception that confidence is an inborn personality trait – that we are either born confident or not. But on the contrary, at The School of Life we strongly believe that confidence is a skill which can be learned and practiced.
The fastest route to confidence is to realise that all of us struggle with feelings of shame and with a sense of being an impostor; that all of us are deeply foolish and constantly anxious - and that therefore many of our worries, far from being grounds for giving up on ourselves, confirm that we are entirely normal, and as worthy of success as anyone else. This is a class for anyone who wishes to develop their confidence in order to lead the life they truly deserve.
What will I learn?
How to Be Confident teaches us:
- How to overcome the Impostor Syndrome.
- How to understand and overcome shyness.
- How to conduct personal and private negotiations with confidence and poise.
- To have courage and confidence in our own agency – that is, the ability to make important changes in our lives.
