Demonstrate authentic leadership by giving back. It’s instant karma.
I know it seems counter-intuitive, but if you’re feeling paralyzed by uncertainty and doubt, my best advice is to resist isolating and get out into your community. If you’re stuck in neutral and you need a new job, then get out of your own way and give back.
You’ll find that running a marathon to help find a cure for cancer, volunteering at a local museum, lecturing at a college or industry event, advocating for a worthy cause or mentoring young people will make you look like a leader, someone who has dimension.
