Be an Expert
Wherever you are in your field of expertise or your work, you must know your job well. Be known as an expert in what you do. When you have the competence and can be the go-to person, it gives everyone around you confidence in your abilities.
Confidence in Your Vision
You need to be able to articulate the big picture; the why of your vision. This allows others to know where you are leading them and gives them confidence you have a plan to get there.
Always be Learning
You need to devote yourself to being a committed lifelong learner. If you want to become a confident expert in your field, never stop growing.
Remember to live, lead, and finish well!
