It is imperative that leaders have the ability to face the cold hard facts about the state of their organization.
It has been said that, “optimism without realism is simply a pleasant delusion”.
Facts, even difficult facts, are the leader’s friend. Because, you see, leaders must be gripped with how things could be to such a degree that they can no longer accept things as they are. Unless you can embrace the reality of where you are, you will be unable to accurately chart a course for where you desire to be.
