Feel the fear and do it anyway!

Jan 21, 2020

Are you willing to be uncomfortable on purpose?

As an entrepreneur, my guess is that you answered yes to that question.  I mean, you did start your own company. That is not a feat for the faint of heart!

But what about when it comes to leading your team?  Do you dive headfirst into the areas of management that make you uncomfortable?

Are you a courageous leader?

It takes a boatload of courage to lead a team effectively.    Most leaders fail because they choose not to do things that are unknown and super uncomfortable.

Think about it…

You need courage to decide it is time to hire a team even though you have never managed anybody before. 

You need courage to choose between two qualified candidates. 

You need courage to slow down to set processes and expectations for your team.

You need courage to trust your team with tasks you used to handle yourself.

You need courage to hold your team (and yourself) accountable to these expectations.

You need courage to have tough conversations with your team.

You need courage (and patience) to learn to communicate in a way that your team will understand.

You need courage to fire employees that are a wrong fit for your company.

In order for your company to grow, you need to grow as a person.  This equates to stepping into the unknown again and again – feeling the fear (or discomfort) and doing it anyway.

Courageous leadership is a must-have quality if you want to build a kick-ass team.

The more courageous you are when leading your team, the easier it will get.  Each time you choose to feel uncomfortable on purpose {delegating task that you have always done, setting expectations, saying the thing that needs to be said}, you are proving to yourself that you are capable of doing what it takes to lead your team.  And the more capable you feel, the more confidence you will have in your ability to lead a team.

Isn’t that exciting?
