Leader, if it is “driving you crazy”.
(Which is a phrase I often hear leaders say about their organization, their team members, or things that are impacting them at the time.)
Whether it’s a systems issue, a personnel issue, or an issue with the progress (or lack thereof) from your team, there are not many options. You can boil them down to a couple of main decisions.
Leader, you have two options when things are driving you crazy:
Do something about it.
- Make the hard decisions.
- Get the right people in the right seats.
- Lead the needed change.
- Cut or add expenses.
- Refuse to compromise on the vision.
Live with it and quit complaining.
- Learn to settle for what you have.
- Be content; knowing things may never change.
- Give up your vision/dream of achieving more. (Just being realistic here.
- Quit trying to motivate others.
- Recognize the sense of loss others on your team probably are feeling.
The choice is yours. After all, you are the leader.
(And I realize this is overly simplistic, but sometimes that’s the way we have to view leadership.)
