As a leader at some point you will become in a confrontation and you can't use the flight reflex and run from the issue at hand.
Being a leader you must know how to properly, confront, and solve problems swiftly.
Furthermore, resolve the situation at hand honestly, utilize empathy and at the same time don't allow yourself to make a emotionally charged decision.
Should you do choose to run/avoid the situation your team/organization will take a hard hit; as a small leak in a water damn will eventually lead to a huge crashing uncontrollable overflow of water over time.
The same will occur within your organization if you leave issues unresolved. If your not the one in charge but recognize there is an issue address it! Respectfully...
