Every once in a while I trip across a GREAT article on some aspects of leadership. Although I am always on the lookout the moment of finding what I’m looking for is a take your breath away kind of thing. Let me just say, this article by Andy Stanley is that kind of find. Really, really, good.
It is so good, I am forced to give you a preview. Check out the first two paragraphs:
Uncertainty is a permanent part of the leadership landscape. It never goes away. Uncertainty is not an indication of poor leadership; it underscores the need for leadership. It is the environment in which good leadership is most easily identified.
Where there is no uncertainty, there is no longer the need for leadership. As Jim Kouzes puts it, "Uncertainty creates the necessary condition for leadership."
This is a huge find. Please check it out and let me know what you think!
