One of the hardest interview questions to answer is “What are your strengths?” Some employees even have difficulty answering that question in their annual review, leaving them to wonder what they’ve actually contributed to the team. If you asked your team to give you a list of five of their skills, how long would it take them? If you had to list five of our own skills, could you do it in less than five minutes?
If not, what may be lacking are these two skills: self-confidence and self-efficacy. These are two skills every employee should have to be a successful team member.
“If people have high self-efficacy in an area, then they think, feel, and behave in a way that contributes to and reinforces their success, and improves their personal satisfaction. They’re more likely to view obstacles as challenges to overcome, so they aren’t afraid to face new things. They recover quickly from setbacks, because they view failure more as a result of external circumstances than internal weaknesses. In general, believing in your abilities affects your motivation, your choices, your toughness, and your determination,” MindTools states. “Therefore, self-confidence – by way of self-efficacy – often affects how well you perform, and how satisfied you are with the choices you make.”
