Confidence in leadership (and life) reminds me of The 3 Bears!
Not too much. Not too little. Just the right amount.
Leaders absolutely cannot be completely dependent on opinions of others but neither can we completely ignore them. We must find the balance of moving forward with our decisions while staying in tune with a listening ear. God places others around us to help us but not to live our lives for us.
I like the quote from E.G. Stevens that says, “Confidence, like art, never comes from having all the answers; it comes from being open to all the questions.”
Developing The Leader Within You (John C. Maxwell)
Ask These Questions
1. What am I most confident in regarding my leadership?
2. What area do I need to grow my confidence in?
