When there are problems ….


“Leaders see AND seize possibilities.”

Carly Fiorino


Identifying things that are not functioning well is not a particuliarly difficult thing to do.  It almost seems like our human nature is particularly good at being critical and finding fault with processes and the ways of other people.

However, what makes top leaders  stand out is their positive attitude. They not only recognize where there are weaknesses, but they also can see possibilities. They can envision solutions  for problems and then harness resources  to solve those problems.


Evaluation time:  if people were to answer this question about you, how would they answer it:

When I am talking with you about  problems, you tend to focus on:

______ the negatives associated with that problem or person


______ how we can fix the problem and come up with a solution to it
