The first step is to disconnect and encapsulate your your self esteem from any work-related notion! This will help you to project gravitas and authority in any situation - also when you don't have any clue in terms of content. It will help you to confidendtly say "I absolutely don't know the answer to this question right now. But I am very confident I will find out soon." Your self esteem should never be contingent on whether you feel competent or savvy on a specific topic. It should be unshakably rooted in the conviction that you will be able to figure it out by means of your own smartness and the amazing resources that are at your disposal as part of an MBB firm.
