The Cure for Uncertainty
When great leadership is present, people have someone to look to when they are uncertain. Uncertainty can be the greatest cause of anxiety and hesitation. One of the most important jobs of any leader is to help the team value the practice of embracing uncertainty. People get scared. They need someone to acknowledge the scariness of the way forward and still inspire the courage to face it. Teams with leaders overcome uncertain times with little effort. Teams that lack a solid leader will default to shrinking back from anything worth doing.
