Fascinating MBA Talk of the Week: 3 tips to boost your confidence

Nothing is more attractive in the interviewing room than confidence. The question is how do you get it?


  • The keys to confidence: genetics, how you're treated, and the choices you make (specifically how you take risks and respond to setbacks)
  • Picture your success when beginning a task, say by listening to music with a deep bass (which makes you feel powerful) or by giving yourself a pep talk
  • Practice failure. Those who fail often learn how to ask others for advice and persevere.
