  13. 13. + Leadership Development  Problem Solving  Four reasons why people do not match the expectations of leaders  They don’t know what they should do  They don’t know how they should do it  They don’t know why they should do it  Sometimes, obstacles beyond their control
  14. 14. + Leadership Development  Attitude  Attitude is the most important asset of a leader  “Life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react.” – Charles Swindoll
