Self Confidence

Definition

One of the four main general emotional competency traits. The ability to believe that one can do something and actually do something.

This whole subject of general competence is dependent on Self Confidence. If people believe they can do things, they usually can. They are willing to try and learn and make things happen.

Those who lack Self Confidence do not believe in themselves enough to try, and consequently don’t make things happen. Those who do have confidence in themselves can make things happen.

However, I have seen good employees in assistant roles with low scores on this trait.
