Fear is a natural part of leadership, because leaders are always pushing forward, trying to make change and improve their workplaces. They are taking on responsibility and dealing with difficult situations every day.
Thoughtful, introspective leaders can be vulnerable to fear because they tend to be aware of their feelings and emotions. Instead of ignoring them, they may feel that this means something is wrong. However, it’s impossible to avoid all fear in your leadership role, and it’s how we respond to them that really counts.
In this episode, I discuss some common fears of thoughtful leaders and some ways to try to reduce their impact on your leadership.
