Effective leaders spend 60 percent of their time solving problems, while average leaders spend less than 30 percent of their time fixing what’s broken. What’s worse, weaker leaders devote over 45 percent of their time to routine maintenance activities, while stronger leaders spend only 10 percent of their time on paperwork. The lesson: If you get bogged down in trivia, you won’t give yourself a chance to lead. That’s why breaking free from the confines of bureaucratic systems to resolve conflicts and produce meaningful results is a key characteristic of an organizational leader.
