It’s a tough time to be running your own business. You must make smart business decisions if you hope to survive. Action has consequences, but so too does avoiding action, and these days you have a razor-thin margin for error. This is why you must assure you’re thinking clearly when you make decisions affecting your business.
A new book by speaker and author Mike Staver promises to show you how fear can limit your potential. Leadership Isn’t for Cowards examines the ways fear can obscure your way forward and interfere with courageous leadership. Once you see clearly how fear is hampering your business decision making, you can learn to embrace the challenges you face, conquer fear and lead from a position of strength.
Besides doing real damage to your business potential, explains Staver, a fear-based approach can hurt your employees, the very people you are charged with leading. All leaders, asserts Staver, “mess with people’s lives,” which is why it is so important that you lead with clarity and awareness rather than fear. “Whether you’re messing with their lives in a positive, growth-inspiring way or a negative, spirit-crushing way depends on the clarity with which you make decisions and execute.”
