How to create confidence in the face of uncertainty.

A serious confidence tip, presented in a fun way - from the shed! During lockdown an alternative 'studio' is required.

In this short piece, I talk about creating confidence at a point of uncertainty. Just enough confidence to do whatever is necessary and to provide space to reflect and plan the next single step. True confidence requires that you work in the moment and stay away from both the troubles of the past and worries about an uncertain future. Thinking about the next move is always conjecture. Build confidence for this moment.


I know, from personal experience, that the steps towards confidence are never easy. As a coach, I am mindful to start by standing side by side with my client on what they perceive to be solid foundations for progress. Or I help them build those foundations brick by brick.

Best wishes - Pete

Coach/Speaker/Writer, The Art of Work

I work with quiet, thoughtful and purpose-driven individuals to help build confidence in both life and work, for example by supporting them to find a voice, speak up, pitch or talk in public without feeling intimidated by louder voices. As a reflective person myself, I'm drawn towards working with others who find the cut and thrust of everyday life to be a challenge. I also help business owners work out how to promote themselves and build an audience for their work. I'm a graduate of the acclaimed Barefoot Postgraduate Certificate in Business & Personal Coaching, and I now teach for Barefoot. My book - The Art of Shouting Quietly - a guide to self-promotion for introverts and other quiet souls – has sold in 25 countries around the world. I'm very experienced - I have 15 years of track record as a mentor in the Creative Industries prior to training as a coach in 2008. Please don't hesitate to get in touch - I'm always happy to talk with you about coaching/mentoring on the phone - with no obligation.

PSTs - Pete's Shed Tips - I googled "existentialist dread" & appreciated Peter desire to make a difference.  My imagined rock face drawing with petons; will sadly be my first disappointment given my amateurish joyurnal drawings.  I don't have a shed, so am stuck solo isolating for the month with one groceries trip.  Thank you for caring.
