De Morgen published an article on leadership and self-confidence. Read WTS Global CEO Wim Wuyts' insights to the next generation leaders:
- Every leader doubts! If you don't doubt you are totally on the wrong track! Read the poem of Rudyard Kipling "If" in moments of doubt.
- Superman, the super leader does not exist! Even Vincent Kompany needs a strong team surrounding him..
- "Ni dieu, ni maitre" - strive for independence and always reflect on your plan B. There is always a better alternative, if needed.
- In moments of doubt read the "stockdale paradox" again. Never lose faith but face the brutal reality.
- It's an extreme thin line between self-confidence and arrogance! Be very aware of it.
- Never lose sight or friends, family and roots. Never!
- Dream big and get into the Arena. Create a space that's yours, and where you are the authority, often on crossroads.
- Explore meditation, mindfulness and yoga. It will boost your self awareness and confidence.
- Laugh and make your friends laugh.
- All is relative, especially the above nine insights.
