When you are ready to lead, you think about the information and tools you have to find a solution to a problem. You ask questions, listen to what others think, identify the problem, and then take action. By doing these things, you are using the leader attribute, Problem Solver.

This weeks I will statement:

“I will be a problem solver by knowing what is causing the problem, then I will take action to correct it.”
