Let's Start off by defining a "weak" leader; see if you can recognize this person:

1. When it comes time for decision-making, he/she hesitates to commit.

2. He/she has made a career of avoiding differences of opinion or potential conflicts. 

3. In a group meeting, he/she waits until others have given their points of view before saying something.

4. He/she tends to "go with the flow" of prevalent thinking, whether it's right or wrong. 

5. He/she tends to agree with whichever employee is the last one in his/her office at the time.

6. When there is a disagreement between other parties, he/she does not intervene, even when it's appropriate or necessary to do so.

7. When someone has offended this person, he/she does not confront the individual directly, but instead, builds support for their own position by talking badly about this individual behind their back.

8. He/she has a tendency to "cry" on other people's shoulders about how overwhelmed and overloaded they are with work and responsibilities.

9. It is very difficult for him/her to give the "hard" messages or give constructive feedback to others. When he/she does have to give a negative message to someone, it's always someone else who has coerced them to do so. They make it a point to let the individual know that it's not their idea.

Do any of these scenarios sound familiar?

What do we do if we are 'blessed' with a weak leader?
