Developing Confidence Training

Our developing confidence training is designed to give you ideas and strategies to develop your confidence, in the context of your work and organisation. This means that the content is tailored to your specific challenges in this workshop style training. Our experience with behavioural change is key to this session, in framing how confidence can be developed.

Confidence can be an issue for people at any level in an organisation. Feeling that you are in a role that exceeds your capability is very common. Even people at the very top of their game can experience a lack of confidence. This includes Golf’s world number one player Scottie Scheffler and singer songwriter Adele.

The specific content of our training is tailored to your needs. We do this through conversations with the training sponsor and with the participants, through our pre-workshop questionnaire.


This training can work for people at any level in the organisation. It can be useful to have a group of people at similar levels, so that they can discuss in twos or threes and share their experiences.

We recommend no more than twelve people participate in this workshop, whether it be in-person or virtual. This is because there needs to be time for each person to ask their questions and raise their issues with confidence.


The most effective option for the duration of our developing confidence training is a three hour session to cover the ideas and explore how they apply. Which is followed a few weeks later, by a two or three hour session to review how successfully the participants’ actions have been implemented. 

Having said that the training works well as a stand alone half or full day session, which means three hours or six hours. Both work, but the longer a session the more time we have to drill down into the detail for each participant.


  • Introduction and objectives.
  • Personal challenges with confidence.
  • How confidence impacts on day to day work.
  • Participant experiences with confidence.
  • ITD Work Styles Model insight to possible issues with confidence.
  • Managing indicators of reduced confidence.
  • Behavioural change theory applied to work situations.
  • Strategies to develop confidence.
  • Mastery experience.
  • 1 to 5.
  • Developing new habits.
  • Peer development buddy.
  • Vicarious development.
  • Coach & Mentor.
  • Applying the ideas to personal challenges.
  • Personal actions using our behavioural model.


Each participant leaves the session with ideas, tips and strategies which they can implement to help them develop their confidence.


Participants complete a pre-workshop questionnaire asking them to define their specific challenges with confidence and objectives for the workshop.

Post workshop

Following the workshop participants have access to the trainer for follow up questions. You can also choose to arrange a virtual follow up session, which can take between 60-180 minutes.

In-person or virtual

This developing confidence training can be delivered in-person or virtually. Both work well, but with this kind of subject in-person is slightly easier and more effective.

Number of Participants

A maximum of twelve participants works well, but smaller numbers are good. That’s because the subject can be personal and people tend to be more comfortable in sharing their thoughts in smaller groups.

Tailoring the training to your needs

We tailor the content of this training in three ways:

  1. Discuss with you the objectives for the session and what you would like the outcomes to be.
  2. Ask the participants about their challenges and what they would like the training to achieve for their personal development.
  3. Tailoring the session during the workshop itself in a dynamic style based on the conversations that occur.

Developing Confidence Training in what?

Our training can help people with confidence issues in a wide variety of areas. This includes specific skill areas such as presenting to a group, virtual presentation skills, negotiating fees, or explaining legal strategies to seniors or clients.

It can also mean confidence in a more general sense. This can include feeling that you’ve been promoted beyond your competence, sensing that you don’t really know what you’re doing, or feeling that you are not competent for a specific task you have been asked to perform.

We don’t claim that our training will fix any and all of these challenges, but it will give food for thought, strategies to consider and we’ll help you to define specific actions where we can.

Martins not only knows his topics but also is a master of presentation; keeping us focused on the issue. Break-away rooms is an excellent technique Martins uses in very appropriate moments to stimulate exchange and productive discussions. Very clearly structured presentations. Five stars, for sure!
