Leadership can’t happen from a place of avoidance and fear.
If you can’t face the problem your team seeks to solve, can’t look it in the eyes with confidence, your team won’t follow.
They’ll look away. They’ll talk behind your back. Doubt will spread like bushfire.
These past few weeks we’ve seen Australia do just that in response to a leader who continues to fumble through the largest national crisis we’ve faced in years.
It’ll take a lot to turn us around.
