teammtgOne “leader” speaks up at the weekly staff meeting: “We have a problem with ______________. This really should not be happening and I’m getting tired of it.”

He has done this before. He comes to the table and dumps a problem into the meeting.

Contrast this with another leader who is also very interested in solving problems:

“We’ve been having consistent problems with ________. I’ve been thinking about it and here’s what I propose we do ________________. I just need a budget and approval to proceed.”

Who is the most valuable to the organization?

Which leader would you prefer to be?
