  • Weak leadership. Your people are not leading effectively.
  • Indecisiveness. You have endless meetings without results. Everybody feels like they are wasting time.
  • Resistance. You get push-back on a change you want to make. You don’t know how to mobilize people for action.
  • Weak morale. Your people are demoralized; there is a lack of enthusiasm.
