Build trust in your abilities by showing these sides of yourself:
- Personal motivation. Explain why the change matters to you personally. Trace your desire to a personal value, belief or principle, and be sure it motivates you to serve everybody’s interests.
- Need for support. Admit to what you don’t know, identify what help you’ll need and acknowledge mistakes you’ve made and obstacles in your path.
