Too often we confuse the lofty goals of leadership with success and forget why we are really there.
We don’t have all the answers.
We don’t know which direction is best
We don’t know what will happen next.
With all those unknowns in front of you, it’s easy to feel worried, afraid and unsure of what happens next and how are we to “really help people”.
And, it’s in those moments that you realize that you are not leading them because you are the best, the smartest, the greatest that ever was but instead that you are guiding your team with the skills that you hope will someday exceed yours.
Leaders with experience is simply another phrase for guiding people and it’s where leaders excel.
