In some contexts of work go to the leader as he fixes everything. The slogan is the leader exists to resolve everything that has to be resolved. But not all the decisions in response to problems must correspond to the leader. The leader required to prioritize that problems require your attention with greater emphasis. This will help it to its decisions focus on the core of the real problems and needs, concentrating your energy, attention and time in solving the problems of life, rather than diluted with many problems at the same time, which only serves and partially resolved. Furthermore, there is a leader with ability to manage effectively all problems occurring in your organization. The leader needs to identify the real crises, potential crises or major opportunities.
The leader must choose that war is going to fight. No you can walk around as Don Quixote de la Mancha, hunting the mill appears in front of your view. The leader deserves to make the difficult decisions that nobody wants to take, which involve high risk, which compromise the survival of the Organization; and that’s leading the organization. But there are many decisions that can be delegated to his collaborators, more if they have previously been trained and empowered. The leader who pays the same attention to every problem not get many effective results, since it will be trapped in the detail of a multitude of problems, subtracting time to the attention of its people, as well as the time for analysis and reflection; time to think and plan. Other decisions can be taken by those who implement them. Generally, people who are closer to the problem, are in better position, in terms of experience, skills and handling of information, to resolve that problem. As a leader you need to delegate resolution of the least essential problems in people who are closest to the problem.
