In my former work with the UN and in the international sector I had to become comfortable as a leader in knowing that there might never be a perfect solution. That most of the time I would have to make decisions when all the information, resources, skills and people where not available.
Analysis leads to paralysis, and if we are too concerned with making a mistake we miss opportunities. Of course, it’s important to act in our best intent and with our best ability, and it’s important to recognize that mistakes do happen. Recovery after a mistake, can be even more important than the mistake itself.
Questions to consider:
Where are you concerned you might drop the ball?
Who can support you in having your back?
Where do you need to become more comfortable with uncertainty?
Where might mistakes be inevitable? What can you do to mitigate or be comfortable with this? What recovery is absolutely essential?
What shift is needed for you around this area?
