Dr. Nick van Dam and Dr. Jacqueline Brassey present their book ‘Advancing Authentic Confidence Through Emotional Flexibility’

Advancing Authentic Confidence Through Emotional Flexibility will be used on IE University programs

Nick van Dam, Chief Learning Officer of IE University and Head of the IE Center for Learning Innovation, and Jacqueline Brassey, Assistant Professor at IE University and a member of the Center of Learning Innovation, present their book Advancing Authentic Confidence Through Emotional Flexibility, on the importance of developing self-confidence to perform well and improve employability, especially in the digital age.

Principally aimed at managers, entrepreneurs and academics looking to improve their performance, the book will also help anybody seeking to develop ‘authentic confidence’. A lack of self-confidence, say the authors, impairs job performance and limits professional success. As Steven C. Hayes, Professor of Psychology at the University of Nevada, says, “the authors transform self-confidence and assurance into something one should produce and not as something we should wait to happen.”
