Be Confident, Not Cocky

I guess everyone needs to be confident in their work.  But it seems especially important for leaders.  Of course, I include library leaders when I say that.

But don’t be cocky about it!  In fact:

Cocky is phony confidence. . . .  The need to feel superior means you aren’t.

(I love those quotes, by the way!) So if you shouldn’t be cocky, how should you find your true confidence?  I suggest you start by reading 12 Ways to Find Your Confidence (from Leadership Freak).

Enjoy!  Confidently!
