If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.
–Vincent Van Gogh
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
– Eleanor Roosevelt
The Leadership Communication Program believes that confidence begins from within. Recognising your own self-worth gives you the ability to do anything you set out to do. The word confidence is a noun, it is a feeling, a sense of trust. It comes from a Latin word fidere’ which means “to trust”; therefore, having self-confidence is having trust in one’s self.
Hence one of the first things we do in our program is to encourage self-reflection and dive deep within to have a better understanding of oneself.
To build that sense of self-worth, it is imperative that we gain the trust of our students so they get comfortable with making mistakes and more importantly failure. At The Confident Communicator we believe very strongly that failure is the best teacher. No great success comes without failure. Edison’s 10,000 attempts to create a light bulb or the most imaginative person in the world, Walt Disney rejected by an Editor who told him, he lacked imagination are great examples that it is important to be comfortable with failure.
To build confidence we create an environment that allows a student to set goals for themselves. Through various activities, tools, techniques and strategies a student can explore possible avenues to discover their own voice.
Some of the features of the program include:
- Public speaking
- Group discussions
- Goal Setting & Vision boarding
- Creative writing
- Listening skills, empathy and kindness
- Giving and receiving constructive feedback
- Working in teams and individually
- Focusing on gratitude, programming the mind to do good and stay positive
After all we are preparing our children to face this very uniquely contradicting world and a challenging 21st Century, where they will need critical soft skills like:
- Redefine and Reinvent oneself with Confidence
At The Confident Communicator we also recognise that children learn best from teachers they like and when they are having fun. Hence our program is very unique as this philosophy is central in everything we do.
This is the generation that wants to live in, and will create, a whole new world built on shared experiences, opinions and collaborations. And, we will proudly proclaim that we were part of their journey!
