5 Reasons Your Employees Don’t Solve Problems
Aka, if you are solving the problems you may also be the problem.
Many managers are promoted based on the depth of their expertise, or their tenure. Which is fantastic, until it is time to coach problem solving. Why?

This will be hard. Behavior changes are. But trust me, it will be transformative.
