When you have all the answers, you get to say, this is what we'll do, and doing it will get us to that place.
You know it, either because you've done it loads of times before and know it works, or because it's safe and predictable like old shoes.
The fun stuff is when you don't know the answers and still have to bring people with you.
I say "fun stuff", but of course, it's terrifying too.
Sometimes it's palm-sweatingly, stomach-plungingly, what-the-hell-do-i-do-nowingly scary.
It's all-too easy to pull back from that stuff, simply because it's so damn uncomfortable.
We're wired to avoid that.
But a leader who's prepared to be uncomfortable, who's prepared to step into the middle of that and still make choices because that's what matters?
I'd raise my game and follow them in a heartbeat.
