Sometimes the things that co-workers are doing just don’t make any sense.
It frustrates me to the point of anger to have someone on the team who has so much potential but just never seems to perform anywhere near their capabilities.
I am sometimes baffled and confused when another person who has been a top performer on our team for years suddenly starts spending more time complaining and whining, instead of working and creating.
And how is it that the one person who used to be the “steady-Eddie” on our team now hardly ever shows up on time, goes home early and squanders much of the day surfing online?
It’s exhausting and disheartening to know that these people aren’t doing what they are supposed to, and none of if it ever made sense to me — until I realized something:
Leadership isn’t logical. Leadership is emotional, because humans are emotional.
