Confidence Increases Work Performance

Strong self-confidence has a direct impact on work performance. In fact, people with strong self-confidence perform 28 percent better at work, according to Stajkovic, Luthans & Slocum’s review of empirical studies that examined the relationship between self-confidence and work performance.

People need some level of self-confidence, also known as self-efficacy in academic journals, to do their jobs and conduct daily activities. In fact, Peterson and Arnn suggest without self-efficacy, employees will not perform. Yikes!

What are you doing to build your employees’ self-confidence? Keep an eye on this blog and I will share more research and practical tips on boosting self-confidence.
