Being able to look at the right direction

Good leadership requires setting the right direction for everyone in the organization, but what if the direction everyone is aiming  for is not really the right place to look at.  The results can be disastrous. Currently stuck in my house due to heavy rains, can't go to the bank, missed my doctors appointment since my …
