Being insecure about yourself or your position in a certain situation is very normal. But insecurity can also go too far. A lack of self-confidence quickly leads to a negative spiral: you no longer dare to take on challenges, you lower your standards less and less, which in turn leads to a deterioration in your self-image. Thus, it becomes increasingly difficult to escape from this vicious circle. Nevertheless, there are a number of simple and effective methods available for achieving this 'escape'.
The training teaches you to recognise the causes of your lack of self-confidence and emphasises the importance of verbal and non-verbal communication in relation to your self-image. In addition, this training uses realistic role-plays from real life. Mutual feedback and video analysis ensure that old behaviour patterns are broken. Because you gain more insight into the underlying causes of your behaviour, you learn to distinguish between desired and undesired forms of behaviour in relation to your final goals.
During the training the following topics, among others, will be discussed:
- What is self-confidence? And what is assertiveness?:
Distinction between subassertiveness, assertiveness and aggressiveness. How do you stand up for yourself?
- Working on a realistic self-image:
What is your background and what is your goal? We will work on setting realistic goals.
- Your own qualities and capabilities:
Success experiences and core quadrants. Gain insight into your pitfalls and bring this back to the quality that lies behind it.
- The importance of verbal and non-verbal communication in relation to self-image:
Behaviour evokes behaviour: by consciously choosing which attitude to adopt, you can use more conscious behaviour and achieve your goals.
- A positive mental attitude (creating and holding):
Rational thinking using RET and the 4Gs.
- Recognising the causes of loss of self-confidence:
- Breathing and relaxation exercises:
Physically dealing with tension and uncertainty.
- Dealing with negativity and criticism: Giving and receiving feedback.
After the training:
- You have more insight into the underlying causes of your behaviour;
- you can act consciously in relation to your goals;
- and you are aware of your qualities and pitfalls
In the training we alternate between concrete experience, experimenting with behaviour and techniques, reflecting and exploring theory. This way, the training programme fits in well with all types of participants. There is a lot of action in the training, so you actually experience the effect of new behaviour. This enables the recognition of success. We also emphasise that everyone is responsible for his or her own growth process and must take ownership of it. In our training we invite you to continuously reflect and make connections with practice. Our aim is to increase your insight and to let you make the translation yourself. This will increase the chance of real behavioural change.
This training is ideally suited for participants who feel insecure. Do you recognise yourself in one or more of the points below?
- You have the feeling that there is more to come from yourself or your surroundings
- You are uncertain about your abilities or characteristics and want to increase your self-confidence
- You want to feel more confident in your communication with others
Of course, this list is not complete: everyone is different. What do you want to pay attention to when it comes to self-confidence?
