All leaders face problems. Arnold Glasow said, “One of the true tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.”
What helps us accomplish this advice?
Address problems when they arise.Waiting for problems to resolve themselves, or ignoring them, is a denial of our role as leaders.
Rely on wise counsel.Resolving problems based on our own wisdom and experience can be effective, but Solomon teaches the value of wise counsel.
Learn to delegate.Get others involved in problem resolution. Assigning tasks to others will help create confidence in their abilities to resolve problems.
Our task is to seek a resolution based on God’s word, where real solutions are found.
