If there’s one trait most of us could use more of in the workplace, it’s confidence. We need it when we’re taking on that new, challenging project, we need it when we’re heading into an interview with our dream company, and we even need it when we’re fixing mistakes.

And, while you can’t become more confident overnight, you certainly can take small steps—steps that require you to go outside your comfort zone—to begin the process. The team at Vegas Extreme Skydiving (because they should know) put together a list of 10 concrete, simple exercises you can add to your everyday routine—whether at work, at the gym, or at the grocery store—to build more poise.
