Leadership & Uncertainty

In complex times, certainty is anything but possible.
Yet many people still wish for higher levels of
certainty in their life and work. I think this is a
normal condition. Marcus Buckingham writing in his new
book called, "The One Thing You Need to Know …About
Great Managing, Great Leading, and Sustained Individual
Success" identifies 5 common fears that were
synthesized through Brown’s 300+ Universals.

Five Common Fears:

-Death
-Outsiders
-Future
-Chaos
-Insignificance

Along with those fears, Buckingham identified as a
result 5 common needs:

For Death > Security
For Outsiders > Community
For Future > Clarity
For Chaos > Authority
For Insignificance > Respect

As Jim Kouzes puts it, "Uncertainty creates the
necessary condition for leadership."

In my view, the next few years are going to turn
leadership upside down, literally and figuratively. No
longer can we rely on “the girl who brung us,” as the
infamous Texas Football Coach Darrell Royal would say.
The times now and in the future are going to become
less clear, less certain, less secure and in a lot of
ways, a lot less about community and more about
networks.

Of course a community is a network, but the underlying
assumption is that a community is normally made up of
people who have common or as some would say, shared
interests. New leadership is going to see the blind
spot in this particular paradigm and starting seeking
people “outside” of the community to promote higher
levels of opportunity in uncertain times.

One thing I’m always fascinated by is the boundaries
drawn by so-called leaders, who stick quietly to
“certainty.” The ‘new’ complexity will flush out these
people who fail to reach beyond their own individual
communities for fear of bringing in outsiders!

Wow, all of this is counter-intuitive, non-idealistic
and will test the mettle of any leader in uncertain
times.

The question remains: “What are you, as a leader, doing
today to reach out to people beyond your immediate
circle, or community?" And a follow-up if I may. “How
will uncertainty affect your leadership today and in
the future?”

Interesting questions I think.
