Leaders are the ignition for their businesses, the instigators, and the match that lights the flame. Leaders are responsible for their departments, teams, and for progress in their businesses. The importance of leadership in business means that leaders must be more than qualified if they are to assume that position. It is common practice for star performers to be promoted into leadership positions because of the results of their previous work. While this may result in a progressive company, in many cases the star performer is unqualified and will stumble over several pitfalls before ever making substantial progress. This is due to their lack of qualifications to lead.
