Playing the victim card is for non-leaders. Victimhood is for those who are afraid, or weak, or spineless, or accusatory, or narcissistic. Wailing and gnashing of teeth never result in positive response.
When problems, catastrophes, storms, and train wrecks occur (as they always will), the most extraordinary leaders step up, not back. They bring the team together and deal with the problem.
Timely adaptability is a hallmark of the strongest leaders,
and the organizations they lead.
