How to Be Confident - Virtual Class

 What is ‘How to be Confident’?

How to Be Confident is a 2.5 hour class by The School of Life which takes place regularly in our virtual classroom over Zoom. It is one of 12 classes around our 4 core themes: Love, Work, Self and Culture. Further information on how to connect to the class will be made available once you have purchased a ticket.



Why should I attend?

Many people struggle with confidence in their personal and professional lives. We may lack confidence in sharing our ideas, making new connections or asking for what we want.

There is a common misconception around confidence being an in-born personality trait – as people, we are either confident or not. On the contrary, at The School of Life we strongly believe that confidence is a skill that can be practised and learned. This class is for anyone who wants to build confidence in some area of life.

 What will I learn?

 How to Be Confident teaches:

  • How to overcome Impostor Syndrome
  • How to understand and overcome shyness
  • How to conduct personal and private negotiations with confidence and poise
  • To have courage and confidence in our own agency – that is, the ability to make important changes in our lives

The format of this class is highly interactive and involves a combination of teaching, group discussion and individual reflection. The facilitators of the class aim to create a confidential space where all participants are welcome to contribute freely and comfortably.
