Speak with Confidence

Everywhere there’s a thirst for workable policies and for the expression of these policies by a person who can speak with some confidence, some assurance. There is a great shortage of people who can say confidently, “Things can be handled,” “Go ahead, try it,” “It will work,” “You’re a good thinker; you can figure it out,” “That’s possible,” “Call a little meeting, have a think-and-listen; you’ll come up with* something,” “It’s a good idea; try it and you’ll get better ones,” “You can do it; you’re a good person.”

It seems to me that I write several letters a day saying mostly this.

* “Come up with” means think of.
