Dealing With Doubt In Leadership

Submitted by James Higginbotham on February 15, 2010 – 4:18 amNo Comment

Every leader struggles with doubt. Sometimes it is doubt about the decisions that have been made. Sometimes it is doubt about their own leadership abilities. Overcoming doubt is an important skill for leaders. Let’s find out how to handle it.

The first step in dealing with doubt is to understand that you are not alone. Every leader deals with doubt. It may be doubt in the skills required for the job. It may be doubt around your ability to lead. Whatever it is, don’t let your doubt prevent you from leading.

The next step is to understand that God put you into your leadership role for a reason. It may be to grow you, to challenge you, or impact others – it may even be all three! Raise your doubt to God. Ask for direction. Seek His wisdom.

The final step is to start where you are today. Don’t worry about what you may be missing or don’t know yet. Step out. Take a risk. Be willing to show up. Most people don’t.
