Fake Confidence- Everyone Does It

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.

Want to know a secret? Most people don’t know what they’re doing. Most people are overwhelmed and are forced to fake knowledge about a certain subject on a regular basis.

The secret to appearing confident is two fold. 1.) Don’t talk too much or you’ll give yourself away. 2.) Say what you can at the right time with a composed demeanor. Studies show that speaking at the beginning and end of a meeting impacts people’s perspective on you the most. It’s also important to compliment others more than proclaim your own greatness. Being likable always goes a long way.

Like a professional speaker, when you are nervous try to look confident so that you can you can overcome every difficulty that arises. You can appear confident even though inside, you are very nervous.

In the case of  a presentation, you are supposed to be fully prepared to boost your confidence levels. Preparation will always ease your jitters and that’s what a professional speaker does.

Trying to make yourself look good overall by dressing properly and making your hair will make you have a much greater confidence levels than that of a person who got prepared in a hurry.

When having a conversation with your boss or having an interview, you should stand up straight, looking other people in the eye, and give a smile. Never rush and try to concentrate on what you know but rather concentrate on what you don’t. You should always be friendly and outgoing.

The way leadership speakers carry themselves is very important, and especially the way he or she dresses when addressing the public. This might seem like it’s a trivial subject, but be assured it can make the difference on whether people will take you seriously or not. If you an aspiring leader, here are a few points to follow.

Dressing isn’t Everything

It’s not about just being smart and wearing a suit if you are a man or a pretty dress if you are a woman. As leadership speakers, you need to know what type of audience you are addressing. We live in a world where you can be judged by appearances, unfortunately. You can be dressed too formally and therefore intimidate the audience so they don’t feel comfortable hearing advice from you. As a woman you can be wearing too much jewelry and put the audience off.

Let Your Clothes Reflect Your Status

Of course, as a leader you have to be successful or at least create the impression that you are successful, so for most part dress according to that status. For men, make sure your shoes are nicely polished and if you are wearing a suit make sure it’s dry-cleaned. For women, it’s good to have a nice dress that’s not too short. High heeled shoes are a good option, but not necessarily compulsory. Dressing like leadership speakers you admire can get you admired as well.
