Definition taken from Nos compétences fortes
Self-confidence reflects the ability of individuals to believe in their abilities and to base their actions on this sense of internal security.
This skill refers to a sense of internal security that allows individuals to recognize the value of what they believe, say and do. Self-confidence thereby requires a good knowledge of one’s potential and abilities. The more individuals are aware of their strengths and weaknesses, the stronger and truer their self-confidence will be.
Being self-confident is more about seeing what we can do, when and how, than about believing or saying that we can do anything.
Self-confidence allows individuals to accept difficult challenges, not out of pride, but because they know that they can do it. Likewise, these people will not be afraid to expose their work to criticism, because they are aware of its value and are proud of the results achieved. Finally, they will not be afraid either to talk in the presence of people who do not agree with them.
