Get out of your own way!

A lot of leaders believe that they need to have all the answers and be capable of solving any and every problem, in order to be an effective leader. The truth is, you don’t need to have it all figured out in order to lead others. As a matter of fact, you’re losing precious time at making a positive difference in someone’s life as you stall and focus on your weaknesses.

Even the most successful leaders have insecurities, doubts and questions. The most impactful leaders have shortcomings, they’ve just learned to push through them. Begin today to embrace your shortcomings and move forward.

You can overcome.

One step at a time, building on what you want to accomplish or become better at is the best way to overcome your weaknesses. Embrace these areas in your world and follow these 3 steps:

  1. 1
    Find your strengths and develop them further. Move away from the idea of fixing all of your weaknesses. Understand your strengths and leverage them instead.
  2. 2
    Find the strengths that you want to have (but don’t) and work on them.
  3. 3
    When you find yourself focusing on your weaknesses, ask yourself this question: What do I know that I could do right now that would help me or someone else on my team be more successful?

The key to learning to lead when you don’t feel most equipped is to take action in spite of your belief that you may not be great at the action you’re about to take. Don’t buy into the lie that you have to be perfect. Work on the strengths that are geared toward your ability to interact with others in ways that cause them to think differently and achieve more because you showed up in their world.
