You’ll figure it out.

If you have worked on a team with me, you have heard me say this to you, and I thoroughly believe it.

We all possess the ability to figure out how to make happen what we want to happen. Maybe the first time (or the first ten times) doesn’t work. But eventually, you’ll get it.

The hard part about figuring it out is you’re doing something you’ve never done before. And just like learning, facing this is difficult. It takes a ton of confidence to tackle our uncompetence and know it’s only temporary.

And as a leader, the best thing you can do to inspire growth is to look someone in the eyes and tell them, “I believe in you. You’ll figure it out.”
