The Silver Lining in Breakdowns

For the most part, we have a negative interpretation of breakdowns and problems. But the thing is, that’s where all the good innovation comes from. They show you where you’re weak,  where you need to have some attention, where you have an opportunity to grow. If everyone’s attitude is that every breakdown is to be seriously avoided, chances are, you have a business culture that’s stagnate.

A fresh approach to a business with a commitment to continuous learning would be to come to meetings with the top issues, breakdowns, and problems for that week. Creating a weekly forum to solve these problems among your key staff builds leadership, wisdom, and the kind of leadership skills you need your teams to have.
