Real leaders don’t fret and fuss about EVERYTHING

If you’re a worrier, then you’re not being as exceptional a leader as you can be. The truth is that very little of what we fret and fuss about ever happens, so worrying about EVERYTHING only creates more instability and angst within your team than there needs to be. I’m not saying you shouldn’t worry at all; I’m just saying that you don’t have to share EVERY concern with EVERYBODY on your team. Worst case scenario, if you persist, others will see you as lacking in confidence or god forbid, setting up to make excuses for future possible failures. Your team members want a leader who calms their uncertainties and doubts, not a leader that amplifies them.

So … do you agree? Or am I being too tough? Jump in with your thoughts.
