We live in a business world that is more uncertain and changing faster than ever before, where leaders must make tough decisions, every day, 24 hours a day, and often with imperfect information. For a business to thrive, its leaders need to have courage, conviction, skill. Their leaders need to be brave.
Businesses need Brave Leaders at all levels, (not just at EXCO level) who can build loyal and engaged teams, capable of dealing with uncertainty and change. Able to make split-second decisions. Able to change direction swiftly as necessary, and in a spirit of positivity.
Who can be a Brave Leader?
Who comes to mind when you hear the word Brave?
Leaders like Ernest Shackleton, Nelson Mandela, Richard Branson and Elon Musk?
Yes, of course, they are brave and take courageous decisions, and sometimes it feels to many, that this is the preserve of these few giants amongst men, and beyond the reach of most of us. But it isn’t.
Because being a Brave Leader is more than this.
It’s something that is available to anyone, at all levels in a business.
A Brave Leader is not a job title you are given, and it’s not about how vocal you are, or being cavalier or perhaps reckless. It is something you earn by your actions, and behaviours, and how you show up each day at work. The Brave Leader is courageous and trusts their instincts to do the right thing. Even when it’s hard. Even when you face adversity and headwinds.
Why is The Brave Leader Important?
The Brave Leader builds loyal, engaged and winning teams. Teams of people who can handle whatever gets thrown at them. Teams that can create sustainable long-term growth. Teams that thrive and embrace uncertainty, and who remain positive and proactive in their mentality and approach.
Can anyone be a Brave Leader?
All it takes is a decision by each person that they want to become better leaders. To be The Brave Leader inside each of us, and then develop some core principles, skills, techniques and approaches to achieve this. We aren’t born brave. We can become brave.
