If You Aren't Scared, You Aren't Leading -  Mills-Scofield LLC - Innovanomics, strategic alignment for innovation | Leading Choices | Scoop.it

Do you find leadership daunting?  Even scary?  I do.  Frankly, I think we should.  Leading others carries a huge responsibility.  It is not for the faint of heart, for those afraid of being wrong, for those who want comfort and stability, or for those who need external affirmation.

ThinDifference's insight:

The importance of asking for help, in addition to answering the "why" and asking the "why not." Leadership is inspiring others to act but also being humble in gathering input and advice from the talented people that surround a leader.
