There can be no friendship without confidence, and no confidence with integrity. — Samuel Johnson.
If we are striving to be friends as well as mentors, coaches, teachers … we need to have integrity. We need to do what we say we are going to do. Practice what we preach, not exaggerate and really get to know our team members. By doing that we will learn where they really need help and how we can help each other. That will help them to build confidence.
