In his book, Developing the Leader Within You, John Maxwell writes that, “a test of a leader is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an Emergency.” He goes on to say, “Under excellent leadership, a problem seldom reaches gigantic proportions because it is recognized and fixed in it’s early stages.”
He goes on to point out the sequence in which leaders recognize a problem…
They sense it before they see it (intuition)
They begin looking for it and ask questions (curiosity)
They gather data (processing)
They share their feelings and findings to a few trusted colleagues (communicating)
They define the problem (writing)
They check their resources (evaluating)
They make a decision (leading)
