You know those times when you feel like things just aren’t right? Things aren’t firing on all cylinders. You’re not panicking, but your frustration is growing. You feel stumped because you cannot figure it out. Things should be going better, but something is missing.
Check your leadership.
If something is awry, the thing that is most likely missing is your leadership. Perhaps you’re not providing any, or maybe there is a mismatch between the kind of leadership you possess and the kind that the situation requires.
You might be over thinking and underacting. Perhaps you are impetuous when patience is required. You can’t be expected to see your blind spots; as the name implies, you have limited vision. You have to broaden your perspective.
Take responsibility, take ownership, and take your leadership seriously. Start to use it more effectively, and you’ll find solutions to your problems.
