The coat and the crisis

The coat and the crisis

First, the story:

One day, Nastratin Hogea appeared limping in the village square full of bruises, on his face and hands. Asked by his countrymen what he suffered, Hogea smiled and shrugged:

- I didn't suffer anything! Only my wife, last night, got very angry with me and threw my coat on the stairs downstairs.


The way we relate to the problems we encounter in leading people is more about what style of leadership we prefer, as leaders. And, unfortunately, less about reality and the objectives in it. … As in the story at the beginning, there is a risk of "forgetting" who is wearing the coat.
