Source: American Express
We often think of leaders as visionary problem solvers, yet to be a successful manager the ability to be a visionary problem framer is extremely important. The reason is scalability. If the leader is solving the problems, only so many problems can get solved. Yet, if he/she has the ability to articulate the problem to team members - thus putting the problem solving power in their hands - scalability expands exponentially.
