Managers in businesses who put out fires all day at work; Leaders who are burnt out and not making any progress on departmental goals/plans; Supervisors in organizations who have direct reports who don't take accountability for resolving problems so problems end up on their plate.
Does work feel like a never-ending stream of fires to put out? Are you exhausted at the end of each day from battling the crisis-du-jour? Are you busy reacting to problems instead of productively and proactively managing your professional agenda? Leaders are supposed to be problem-solvers, but there is a deeper issue if you spend your entire day putting out fires without advancing departmental projects and organizational goals.
