navigational conversations™ Provides Organizational Leaders with the skills to unlock the talents and problem-solving abilities of others

A major challenge faced by many organizational leaders is their own tendency to be hands-on problem solvers. This skill may have contributed to their promotion to management, but I can easily become a limitation. Effective leaders know that their primary role is not to solve problems but to unleash the problem-solving capacity of those around them. Until they gain this skill, they are functioning as ‘worker bees’ instead of leaders.
