One of the real challenges leaders face in business is seeing with helicopter vision. This is often very difficult when you are busy and involved with many projects and challenges at an operational depth within a business. A leader needs to find the time and space to remove themselves, understand the landscape and have enough time to think through the right possibilities for the business. We may often need to have a coach or outside strategist who questions our thinking and helps us to see clearly. I have experienced many leaders who never make the time to get out of the forest and lead all their followers into darkness.
