Chapter 5. Developing Confidence > Self-Empowerment Analysis

Self-Empowerment Analysis

On a scale of 1–5, with 5 being highest, rate your degree of comfort in performing each of these actions, most of which will require on-the-spot thinking. Without deliberating very much, record what you would say in these situations.

  1. Everyone at the meeting, including your boss and your boss’s boss, has expressed approval for a plan of action. You are the last person to give an opinion and your opinion is that the plan will not work. How comfortable would you be in expressing the only dissenting vote? (Circle the number that best reflects your degree of comfort.) 1–2–3–4–5 What would you say?
