I want to thank those of you who are actively “priming for trust” this space – as well as the circle sessions. Reading this quote I am reminded how rare it is for someone who is in leadership to get to explore, express an uncertainty, or wander.
I’ve read “too many” management books that talked about expressing your certainty and hiding your doubts. “People want decisive leaders, fearless!” Ugh. I don’t. Not really.
Or at least I don’t want leaders around who arrogantly assume they know what is best for everyone (including the company and all its stakeholders).
To me being calm and confident is different from being someone who delusionally denies uncertainty to push ahead to Victory!
Confidence says that uncertainties can be embraced. That there is trust already primed that allows for inclusion of perspectives and angles that are even incongruent with what the people in decision-making roles are espousing.
Thanks for being here, co-creating. To me we’re engaging in emotionally free ways that matter.
