Overview

Women are achieving unprecedented success in public and private sectors. But still, there’s a dark shadow of doubt that women can nurture — doubt about their ideas, their abilities, their right to rule at the top.

In this candid, motivational speech, Katty Kay offers up the most compelling and surprising new research from her latest book, The Confidence Code, which suggests that confidence may well be the missing ingredient for women today who are eager to find both success and satisfaction at work and at home.

Just one example of the real-world results: women won’t apply for promotions, according to some studies, unless they have 100% of the qualifications. Men will go for that job when they have 60% of the qualifications.

Kay gets to the bottom of the female confidence conundrum in this video featuring Arleen Thomas, CPA, CGMA, Sr. Vice President, AICPA.

Topics discussed:

  • If confidence is more important than competence
  • If there a confidence gene
  • What are women doing, or learning wrong
  • If perfectionism impedes confidence
  • If bravado is confidence - if we have to be jerks to be confident
  • How important it is really to our lives
  • If it is possible to get more of it, even late in life
