I Have a Question: Leading with Uncertainty, Doubt, and Embarrassment


Leadership is often associated with confidence, conviction, and unwavering resolve. Authentic leadership however goes beyond a facade of certainty; it requires embracing vulnerability and acknowledging the presence of uncertainty, doubt and (at least for me) embarrassment.

Let me share the strategies that worked (and the mistakes learnt on the way) in leading teams from teams of 3 to 300 engineers. How to lead effectively amidst ambiguity, and the practical insights into building resilience, fostering a culture of psychological safety, and leveraging moments of embarrassment as opportunities for personal and professional growth.
