|My opinion on the Article’s comments.||Having confidence in your abilities at work is important it reinforces that you belong there and showing a lack of confidence where you are having to question others can show your lack of expertise. It is important though that workers feel confident and safe in their positions so that they able to ask questions when unsure so they can do the job right. Bosses gain confidence when their workers display a positive attitude to their work as such attitude shows them that the tasks they have assigned them will be done properly.|

” I would rather hear, “Whilst that might be challenging, here is how I think we should do it!”. That’s a lot more positive and shows a can-do attitude, which is very much at the core of Agent99 PR’s values.”
