having faith in oneself, positive, having confidence, feeling secure, having self-belief, hopeful, believing in oneself, secured, sanguine, optimistic, assertive, self-possessed, self-confident, assured, convinced, buoyant

Example

Being capable and being confident don’t always go hand in hand – there are plenty of businessmen and entrepreneurs who are great at what they do yet have trouble when presenting their ideas, trying to network and even when dealing with their subordinates. On the other hand, in certain cases it’s the people who are confident and bold that can get others motivated or interested, even though these people may not be particularly qualified or skilled. To be an effective team leader, you have to project confidence.
