Chapter 4: The A Gene: Aspiring  > The Leadership Step: Aim to Dream

Il_9781598694468_0154_001 THE LEADERSHIP STEP
Aim to Dream

The aspiring leader understands that fear of change and making mistakes causes individuals to resort to the primitive fight-or-flight reaction. The essential practice for diminishing this fear is to take risks, knowing that each step will be a lesson for learning. By creating an environment where people can stretch, try new things, dream, and dare to take risks, there is psychological safety in learning to step into a new level of greatness.

Aspiring leaders give people room to learn and grow. They take the edge and anxiety out of stretching beyond a comfort zone and enable people to experiment and discover their own potential without fear of punishment or retribution from the boss. Doing so eliminates the meta-messages that cause fear of change in others.
