When faced with criticism, leaders usually utter some version of the same cliché: “complain all you want, but the view is pretty different when you’re in power.”

Presidents say it about the Oval Office. CEOs say it about the corner office. Shareholders say it about the boardroom.

The sentiment, of course, is that you never know the full measure of a problem until you’re in the driver’s seat.

Heavy is the head that wears the crown, and so on…

On less than a day’s notice two of my employees were on a plane on a Thursday to the client’s location.  Others back at the office started working on elements of the project. When the field team returned late Friday things were humming along. We had a plan.  We knew that included working on Saturday.  However, like most projects it turned out to be more complicated than anyone anticipated.
