Of course it is. That’s why you are a leader. A leaders job is to facilitate problem resolution. Period. A leader may not sit and actually solve the problem, but it’s his or her job that the problem is solved and to make it happen.
That’s why soft skills, social skills take some times more precedence than hard ones. Executives need to understand not just the maths of the business but also what emotions drive decisions.
A crucial component of this is then training. Incorporating training in everyday life, down the ranks at all levels of leadership to imbibe empathy and problem resolution thinking becomes one critical component of building leadership across ranks.
