Leadership is Uncomfortable
For most of my life I have had some form of a leadership role, and let me tell you, (maybe you,re not that way but) every now and then I have moments where being a leader makes it hard to be in my own skin.
Leadership Is Uncomfortable Because It’s Supposed To Be!
As Seth Godin writes in his book Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us,
“Leadership is scarce because few people are willing to go through the discomfort required in leading others . . .. . . . It’s un- comfortable to stand up in front of strangers. It’s uncomfortable to propose an idea that might fail. It’s uncomfortable to challenge the status quo. It’s uncomfortable to resist the urge to settle. When you identify the discomfort, you’ve found the place where a leader is needed. If you’re not uncomfortable in your work as a leader, it’s almost certain you’re not reaching your potential as a leader.”
