The Maxwell Daily Reader: 365 Days of Insight to Develop the Leader Within You and Influence Those Around You by John C. Maxwell

Great leaders usually recognize a problem in the following sequence:

  1. They sense it before they see it (intuition).

  2. They begin looking for it and ask questions (curiosity).

  3. They gather data (processing).

  4. They share their feelings and findings to a few trusted colleagues (communicating).

  5. They define the problem (writing).

  6. They check their resources (evaluating).

  7. They make a decision (leading)."
