It is easy to blame people when they fail to perform.  It is the go-to for many.  However, as a leader you must consider your part of the equation.  What have you done to minimize the mental friction in order for the team to understand and take action?  How many mental calories do your people need to consume to behave in the manner you desire?  In other words, how well do you simplify your vision or instruction to get what you need or want?  This self-examination is powerful and can accelerate the results you desire.  What if you are the problem because your mind's clear vision is challenging for others to see and make actionable?    How can you, as the leader, eliminate or minimize external causes of mental friction? Let's take a look.
