Leadership thoughts on the fly

There is a real problem when a leader fails to communicate effectively and thereby facilitate the development of competent individuals under him.

A leader can make any number of astute observations, but they ultimately mean nothing to him if he fails to interpret them and respond effectively. If, for example, he just keeps a mental list of a person's deficiencies but develops no plan to address them, eventually his emotions dictate the inevitable action. This can come in the form of an irrational explosion of anger and frustration, half of which should be directed at himself for allowing something to progress to this point, and the other half falling on deaf ears since we know "a harsh word stirs up strife."
