Being a leader is not just about giving orders; it is about taking decisions and responsibilities and being trusted by your followers. A leader has to have confidence. A person who cannot believe in his own self and his talents, can never gain trust among his followers.
Confidence is the basis of leadership. A leader needs to be an efficient problem solver, a skilful communicator; a coordinator and none of these can be achieved without a dignified amount of self esteem. Being a confident leader is not just about trusting one’s abilities, it is about having other virtues, which contribute to self confidence.
