Thought for today:
 
‘Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.’
 
— Brian Tracy

In a session with a client recently, they described the way in which one of their managers “dumped” problems in their lap.
 
This is a common problem – managers who want to be leaders, yet see problems and “pass them up”.
 
To lead requires a different mindset.
 
One which finds solutions, typically from a group of people or a team.
 
Utilising the diversity of thought, experience and skills to fashion solutions requires humility.
 
And therein lies the problem – it is asking for help from the people who probably report to you.
 
I recently had a coachee ask me how he could stop his reports coming to him with questions.
 
Rather than learn and grow, they found it easier to ask him – constantly.
 
I wonder, how would you coach someone in these circumstances?
