Be Comfortable In Your Own Skin

Last week I was talking with my 14-year-old daughter about confidence and encouraging her to have a little more.  I found it difficult to describe what the right amount of confidence is.  We all know what too much confidence looks like and what too little looks like.  Neither are helpful qualities.  I finally found the right words in the phrase, “be comfortable in your own skin.” Someone with this level of self-esteem feels good about who they are, doesn’t need lots of approval from others, nor needs to tell others how great they are.  This is that fine line between humility and confidence that is difficult to walk.  

We at ACT Dental firmly believe in Patrick Lencioni’s vulnerability-based trust as the foundation for a healthy team culture.  As always, this should start with the leader.  I like to call this hard to define leadership quality “humility based leadership.”  This leader is strong but humble, leads by example, not words.  Being comfortable in their own skin, they are willing to admit fault, mistakes, and ask for help when they need it. This is the type of leader I strive to be because it is exactly the type of leader I myself find easy to follow.
