Insecurity Sucks–Second Addition

Insecurity sucks. Plain and simple. It really sucks when it comes to insecurity in leadership. It is nearly impossible to be a successful leader if you’re insecure.

I wrote this post for Swerve, the Lifechurch.tv blog a couple months ago. Today I want to share a few more thoughts about insecurity in the leadership above you and why it is so deadly.

  • If the leadership above you becomes insecure, the tendancy to “control” everything comes into play.
  • If the leadership above you becomes insecure, the less they want their followers to flourish.
  • If the leadership above you becomes insecure, they will have a hard time allowing their people to be who they were created to be.
  • If the leadership above you becomes insecure, they might start attracting only those who don’t indimidate or challenge their leadership.  
  • If the leadership above you becomes insecure, they will lose those who AREN’T insecure.
  • If the leadership above you becomes insecure, it could be the ultimate undoing of that leadership.

I lead a team of about 75 people every week. I strive hard not to control, allow them to flourish, and not become insecure so that my team can be the best they can be.  

What about you? Do you lead people? A team, a family, a small group, employees? Where do you find yourself when it comes to insecurity?

Insecurity sucks.

What insecurities are holding you back right now?

How have you seen insecurity sabotage you or someone else’s leadership?
