The Confidence/Competence Loop

The Confidence/Competence Loop | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it
Using the confidence/competence loop can drive performance and inform, inspire and ignite those you lead. Jump-start your confidence with these application techniques.

 

There are several basic areas of study that, as we study them, we can become more effective coaches and leaders.  This long list includes both human behavior and learning.  The psychological concept I want to talk about today comes from the intersection of these two fields of study.

 

Don’t worry; I’m not going to go all academic on you (though you could, with a simple web search, find lots of scholarly work on what we are going to talk about).

 

Here is the concept – the confidence/competence loop.

 

We all recognize that our success accelerates when we are confident.  The reason is simple.  Without confidence we revert to fear, and when we are fearful we don’t take any action.  We get tentative, we delay and we procrastinate.  When you are able to let go of fear, you take action more quickly and easily.

@Gloria, estoy deacuerdo completamente!
Love Learning's curator insight, February 12, 2013 6:56 AM

I like this concept.  It has worked for me in the past in situations where I woudl like to be more confident.  To me it's all about being prepared and knowing my subject.  If I am competent at what I'm doing, confidence comes naturally!

Daniel Kahneman: Adversarial Collaboration

"Daniel Kahneman makes an important point, one rarely addressed so directly in academic circles -- that the ego-clashes we tend to excuse among high-achievers are dangerously counterproductive when it comes to advancing human knowledge. He proposes adversarial collaboration as one alternative.

Transcript-- There are different forms of adversarial collaboration. So one form is that you have people who disagree on some theoretical issue trying to conduct experiments that will resolve their differences or reduce their differences. And that is the first step in adversarial collaboration, let's see what we agree on and then let's try to trade our differences. 

In some cases they're friends, so you can easily agree, although you agree that when you write up the results you will write them in two voices, so you don't not commit yourself to agreeing on the interpretation of the result. Sometimes you need an arbiter to run the experiment. That is when relations are more tense. Instead of the reply and rejoinder format you can agree to write a joint article in which you first settle what you agree on and then what you disagree on. 

You have to be willing not to win, that is you have to be willing to accept a draw and to see that in the interest of science and civility and other things a draw is better than a win. I happen to find a few people who are willing to do that. By the way, it is not easy because people who think poorly of your work and of your ideas get on your nerves and so you have to overcome that.

The best of example of adversarial collaboration that I have had was on issues of the boundaries of intuition. When is intuition marvelous and when is it flawed and it was with Gary Klein, who is a well-known author who was a great proponent of expert intuition. And so we worked for six or seven years together trying to hammer out our differences about whether intuition is valid or not and we came out with an article that was actually--well, it was a bit in two voices--but on most things we agreed. And that was the best adversarial collaboration of all.."
