penguinsOftentimes, a Leader (capital L) is frustrated with her leaders. Usually it is because she is more organized, proactive and motivated than the people she leads. She walks into meetings with the answers. Her leaders never leave a meeting with her without an answer. She directs people with specific and explicit instructions.  She points out her leaders’ mistakes in each meeting. Yet, her leaders don’t respond. This is the main cause of the Leader’s frustration. The missing link is the realization that leaders are not the only ones who need to change their mindset. The Leader is just as much a contributor to the lack of organization, proactivity and motivation as the leaders are.
