Janitor or CEO?

Leadership principle from Steve Jobs.

"When you're the janitor, reasons matter[...] Somewhere between the janitor and the CEO, reasons stop mattering..."

As a leader, the reasons for failure do not matter to those I have failed.  So, when I look for leadership potential in employees or volunteers, an excellent indicator is when they stop giving reasons for failures and instead work to avoid or fix them.
