Business Problems are Leadership Problems


I met a gentleman many years ago that I quickly came to know and trust. He taught me several great lessons. One of them came rushing back to me recently as a result of a situation that will take far too long to discuss in this forum.
If you are in a leadership position…take a seat. This one might make your BP go up. “All business problems are leadership problems.”
Not sure if he coined the phrase, but it has proven true throughout my career. I look at it in two directions: 1. If a business has problems (they all do), it’s because the leader has failed in some way (yep, that includes me). 2. Leaders are responsible to ensure that problems get solved.
OK, Leaders, if you are part of the problem are you ready to fix yourself and fix the problem?
