Thank you to all those who were able to make it to our first Coffee Connections discussion – focusing on Confidence. It was wonderful to see new faces, and we really enjoyed the discussion. Everyone at the table was able to share an example (some of us many) when we’d hesitated rather than speaking up in a meeting or in class, or ‘over-thought’ something to the point that we missed out on a new opportunity or new challenge. It was a new topic for many of us, so with increased awareness of these tendencies and their various causes, we challenged ourselves to take some intentional risks – speaking up and hopefully worrying less about perfection. We received a great response to the proposal of discussing this topic again in a few months, so if you missed it we hope you can participate at then, and in the meantime, check out the book or the article in the Atlantic.
