Uncertainty is Why We Need Leadership

I was reminded of this remarkable point by watching Michael Hyatt’s interview with Andy Stanley:

Stanley says that leaders feel like they’re failing in times of uncertainty, but it’s actually job security.

I find this truly encouraging, as I’m currently facing a number of important decisions and I lack certainty about which way they should go. In fact, nobody on our team does.

Therefore it creates an opportunity to lead. It creates an avenue to bring people together, ask important questions, make gutsy decisions, and shape a process to bring others along.

Are you facing uncertainty? Don’t be discouraged — see it as an opportunity to lead.
