If a leader or manager is weak or passive, their team or employees become weak and misguided.

Rhetorically speaking, how often do we wonder why management positions have a high turnover rate or how often we as leaders blame our followers for failures instead of looking within at our own leadership skills or lack of. Too many leaders become complacent or comfortable instead of continuing to learn, grow and evolve the ever-changing dynamic of leadership.
