How many times have you thought the following when reading a job description…
I don’t have enough experience.
I don’t think I’m qualified.
I’m not good enough for this role.
I once passed over a job description thinking just that. Then, I came back to it, applied, and I ended up landing the role! So, let these negative thoughts above be a blaring alarm inside your head. If you find yourself saying similar phrases, instead replace those negative thoughts with…
I have unique experiences.
I am confident in my background.
I am good enough.

Have faith in yourself.
When you replace “Why this is happening to me ?” with “What is this trying to teach me ?” everything shifts.
Your are so busy doubting yourself, while so many others intimidated by your potential.
When toxic employees’ negative behaviors are tolerated, it can have a hugely detrimental effect on the culture of any company, decrease collaboration between teams, affect the way customers are treated, and so much more.
People in leadership positions will often look for a quick fix, but it’s not that simple. Unfortunately, as the person who sits in the leadership position, the buck stops with you. You need to take full responsibility for the low morale of your department or organization and urgently address the situation before all the good employees leave and the toxic remains.
That’s why it so important to have a rigorous recruitment and selection process since everyone will not fit into the culture of the organization, and everyone will not have the attitude to lead even though they may be brilliant at performing their job.
One must always remember that the culture of any organization is shaped by the worst behavior the leader is willing to tolerate.
Leadership can be challenging; as a matter of fact, it can be frightening, tiring, and exhausting. The stereotypical leadership image of a buttoned-up person in a gray suit hauling around a hefty briefcase is long gone.
Leaders have evolved, and our leaders need inspiration and motivation to deal with all the daily challenges. When you feel like your head is about to pop or your leadership batteries are running low, turn to these short words of wisdom for a quick boost to your confidence and development.
