As leaders, our job is to effectively navigate diverse and, oftentimes, unexpected challenges for projects taking place within our organizations — particularly the ones where the stakes are the highest.

Missed deadlines, overspent budgets, disconnect between project expectations and the end result, and lack of mutual accountability are a few of the challenges — and the list could go on. But amid problem-solving these roadblocks, have you stopped to consider:

  • What may be some of the underlying causes of these organizational obstacles? 
  • Does my team have all of the resources they need to succeed?
  • What can I do, or provide, for my team that will ultimately lead them to triumph?
