Self-efficacy, or a person’s belief in their ability to get things done, is correlated with individual and team performance. Self-efficacy influences how we approach personal and business challenges, engage in mobilizing teams toward a shared purpose and ultimately, how effectively we are able to focus even in the most difficult circumstances. It is the “secret sauce” for career success in any field.

While it may seem straightforward, self-efficacy is not easy to achieve and once achieved, quite difficult to sustain. Join Liz West and Bill Richardson as they examine the three major components of self-efficacy and how they shape both personal well being and professional success.
