Feel like you are riding a rollercoaster and there is no safety bar?
Is you day at work like a rollercoaster that is made of marshmallow and you are wrapped in bubblewrap?
Either doesn't work.
You need the safety bar - rules and guidelines that help everyone make good business decisions based on the needs of the organization and grounded in the values of the company.
But at the same time, you cannot be strapped and restricted to the point of no motion.
Risk is good. The level of risk needs to be assessed.
Risk can bring improvements, innovation, new customers, new products, new avenues for growth.
What to do? The leader who refuses to take risks will stagnate...and so will their numbers and their development - of the business and the team. Even taking measured risks will provide growth. No risks creates complacency for both your clients and your team.
