Now I know that a failure of leadership is something we have all either heard of…or experienced. Unless our entire existence is spent playing video games and texting like-minded others we have seen leadership fail.
Leadership failure happens for a variety of reasons. For example:
- It can come from the leader losing interest
- It can come from the leader’s departure
- It can come because the leader was never able to obtain buy in for their vision
- It can come from the leader never really being a leader
While not all of the reasons leaders fail those 4 can cover most of the reasons and experiences we have had. There is a 5th reason not mentioned above. A reason in my view and experience covers almost every reason leaders fail. It is a loss of courage.
