7. Cultivate and project confidence
Women often suffer from a crisis of confidence in the workplace especially when the environment is hostile or chilly to them. Confidence wins the top spot every time. Building confidence suggests remembering past successes believing in your ability (education and training play a big role here) knowing yourself and seeking career encouragement (a mentor can help).
Williams also suggests creating a career portfolio as a great way to reinforce your sense of confidence. You may also get a boost to your confidence from tracking your accomplishments.
