As a leader, you often find yourself in situations where you don't immediately know what to do. Especially in times of uncertainty, as many companies are experiencing now, your team looks to you for guidance. That can be challenging because, well, you're only human, and it's difficult to remain confident when you're not sure what's going to happen exactly. In such moments, you tend to fall back on what you know, even if that might not be the best approach.
...and uncertainty is the only thing we can be sure of. At times, you might not respond optimally to the unfamiliar. You put aside your emotions and attempt to logically resolve the issue. You strive to eliminate uncertainty to minimize the risk of errors. You hesitate to embrace the unfamiliar. It's no surprise that you often attempt to steer clear of it. Yet, consider looking at uncertainty through a different lens, as it can lead to failure, but it can also lead to success, of course!
