One more thing about reactionary management. It doesn't matter your style of leadership. You could be a visionary who sees the big picture or a functional who is focused on the functional details of the job.
If you procrastinate often, you'll be forced to be reactionary. If you refuse to be held accountable, you'll find yourself being reactionary. If you fail to hold others accountable for their actions or inaction, you'll find yourself being reactionary with each emergency.
The solution, of course, is to take care of things now. No matter how small or seemingly insignificant.
I said a lot earlier about what I termed reactionary management, so I won't say it all over again. Just a few things to think about today.
