Dr. Nick van Dam and Dr. Jacqueline Brassey, Adjunct Professor at IE University, coauthor this book which reflects 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.
