Building confident organizations by filling buckets, building infrastructures, and shining the flashlight.
Nurs Econ. 2004 Nov-Dec; 22(6):333-5.NE

Abstract

Leaders have the ability to create confidence or fear in the organization. Kanter (2004) writes that confidence is the "...sweet spot between arrogance and despair" (p. 8). Overconfidence causes people to overshoot, and to assume they are invulnerable. Under-confidence is just as harmful because it leads to under-investing in people, under-innovating, and eventually leads to the disenfranchisement of staff and poor morale. If we take Kanter's advice, we will build an infrastructure that creates confidence in everyone and the organization. But we will not stop there. We will focus "flashlights" on people and activities that are inspiring to others.
