Harvard Business Review conducted several quantitative and qualitative studies to explore why capable people are reluctant to lead. They found three specific types of perceived risks that deter people:
- Interpersonal risk
- Image risk
- Risk of being blamed

- Go the extra mile to support your more risk-sensitive colleagues
- Manage conflict - and how people interpret it
- Find low-stakes opportunities for people to try out leadership
