Are you someone who avoids conflict at all costs? It's tense, uncomfortable and the last thing you want to do. You want everyone to get along, you don't want to rock the boat. You'd rather please people than speak up.
And this niggles at you daily because you feel like you aren't being a good leader by avoiding it.
Rather than tell you to do something radically different, I want you to take small steps daily to be more assertive. Here are a few ideas to kick you off
1. Know your values and live by them – even when it's hard.
2. Say yes when you know you need to say yes – doing it even though you are afraid. Only say no when it doesn't align with your values.
3. Make lots of decisions every day – it builds the muscle to do things quickly without all that indecision.
