Two simple letters, but so hard to use. The result tends to leave a leader overloaded, panic stricken, and stressed out.
Why does this happen? Here are a few possibilities.
Pride: The issue here is the mindset that no one else has the ability to do the job as good as “I” can do it.
Selfishness: When leaders become so focused on their own agenda or desires, saying “yes” creates a busy appearance and pads the ego.
Apathy: When leaders are no longer concerned about others, they might as well say yes because it does not matter whether they get to it or not.
