As a CEO, reflecting on your current leadership behaviours and stepping up as required is critical. You often need to lead differently tomorrow from how you are today. You need to take yourself out of your comfort zone - and be confident enough to do this - and be aware of your context and what the environment requires of you to lead because this is always changing.
Continue to challenge yourself and ask, ‘If what got me here won’t get me there, what do I need to be doing now to step up?’ How do I build ‘real’ confidence rather than a fake sense of bravado? Inevitably when we step up and exercise leadership differently there will be setbacks and times of challenge so learning the skills to maintain confidence and resilience is critical to leadership success.
