It’s uncomfortable 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.
If you’re in business, or participate in community groups of any sort and haven’t read marketing guru Seth Godin’s book Tribes yet – do it now. It’s a brilliant book offering insights into the realities of marketing today. It’s not about selling products or services – it’s about building and leading communities, building and leading tribes. My favourite book of 2009.
