There is a shortfall of courage in leadership.
Now, more than ever, if you want to help organizations move with agility, you need to build the courage to change at every level of your organization.
Your ideas won’t always be popular. You will often find yourself standing alone. You won’t know for certain if you’re doing the right thing – you won’t have any certainty at all. But you’ll Go Anyway. That’s what makes leaders so special.
Breathe. Be mindful. Notice. Intercept fear and the false dialog that arises in your mind. Take control. Remember why you are here. And practice. Innoculate yourself against the stress of taking a stand by doing it, and doing it again.
That’s how leadership and courage are built. One moment at a time.
