There is a fine line between being self-assured and being arrogant. I’ve learned this through my own personal and professional development and through observation of others. What is key is to find balance between providing “command presence”, even as a Project Manager and not being too overbearing with your opinions or decisions.
The definition in the graphic above is directly from Self-Assurance section of the StrengthsFinder 2.0 book. In the latest episode of the ‘People, Process, Progress’ podcast, I provide a brief synopsis of the “StrengthsFinder 2.0” (https://www.amazon.com/StrengthsFinder-2-0-Tom-Rath/dp/159562015X) book put out by Gallup and Tom Rath I talk about the “CliftonStrengths” developed by Don Clifton, the “Father of Strengths Psychology”. More specifically, I provide parallels between the CliftonStrength actions for self-assured people to how these traits can work to the benefit of self-assured Project Managers.
