To Develop Leadership Skills, Practice in a Low-Risk Environment
Most leadership trainings are about leadership — teaching ideas, sharing best practices, and increasing knowledge. But successful people rarely become better leaders because they know more. They become better leaders because they follow through on what they know.
Follow-through requires what I call, emotional courage, which is the willingness to feel the hard feelings that come when we take risks, break old patterns, and try new ways of acting. And that is how we become better leaders.
