“How can I work well with others so I get a good response? I often have to use hierarchy or even going over people’s heads to get the work done. Not everyone thinks like a scientist, there often is a political agenda.”
“I took over a team that had a boss in the past who didn’t care much. Now they are used to so many bad habits and I don’t know what to do. Some of them are slow, unwilling, demotivated. They even ignore my decisions and the priorities I set. I’m annoyed and frustrated, because they’re taking up all the time I could spend on actually doing the work. And to top it off, it’s starting to demotivate the rest of the team.”
“I don’t feel qualified unless I know every aspect of the topic I’m working on. Now I took over a team who are bigger experts than I am. That feels uncomfortable. I can’t win an argument. And I get conflicting information from my boss and my peers as well. It’s stressful, I don’t know where to get the answers from.”
“I can’t rely on a plan. How can I lead my team if the company keeps changing direction? With this ambiguity things can completely change from one minute to the other. It’s hard. I don’t know what we’re working towards.”
“There are so many things to keep in mind as a leader. All of a sudden everyone’s eyes are on you and the smallest things have an impact. Often I’m not even aware of the impact my actions have on others. No one is telling me my blind spots. It feels like I’m doing a bad job, like I’m not a good leader.”
“No one prepares you for the tough stuff. Telling someone they’re underperforming and giving negative feedback is hard. How can I stay authentic and true to myself and still get my team to pull their weight?”
“We have a million things to do. And everyone is trotting along. I don’t know how I can motivate my team and give them the inspiration they need. How can I make them want to follow me?”
“I’ve been in my position for years and everyone always tells me what a valuable team member I am and that I’m doing a great job. But when it comes to making the next step and being rewarded there’s always an excuse. What do I have to do progress in my career?”
“My boss thinks twice as fast as I do. It’s like he doesn’t listen and knows best all the time. I have the feeling that I can’t meet expectations and my stock is going down. I’m very demotivated. Like I don’t belong to the team anymore. But I can’t talk to him, because I’m afraid it’ll affect my rating and his perception of me.”
“I have to check with my boss for even the smallest decisions. Everything needs to be aligned and I really feel micromanaged. This is annoying. I don’t know if there’s a political agenda I’m not seeing or if I’m not trustworthy.”

Your gut feel and intuition hit a limit.
The trial-and-error technique is very effortless, feels authentic and sustainable. But sometimes it goes wrong and the mistakes you make cause frustrations in your team. You noticed that empathy isn’t everything and you’re fresh out of ideas when brainstorming with yourself.
Advice from mentors and colleagues doesn’t do the trick anymore.
It’s very convenient and quick to go ask others in your company for advice. And often they can help you with their experience and because they know the people around you. But they always seem to give the same advice and you’re in need for something fresh. Sometimes you even ask the wrong person and suffer the consequences.
You struggle to apply what you learned in leadership trainings and through e-learning.
E-learning and leadership trainings are good to teach the theoretical background. And often you find some golden nuggets of wisdom in there. But besides taking a lot of time out of your day job, not everything you learn there is useful or applicable to your specific situation. You feel like you have a hard time translating the concepts to real life. Or you flat out forget what you learned the minute you’re back in daily business.
