Perhaps this a question with more than one variable to factor into the answer. However, knowing self-esteem and confidence is an essential ingredient of effective leadership, the larger question is do you help someone rise up out of failure if they are not leading or managing well or do you sit back and watch them fail? If you watch them fail, certainly they may have a reduction of self-esteem or confidence, BUT you may have your reasons. If you help them up, you may never get the gratitude you deserve, but there may be more to it than that. What are your thoughts and how would you approach this situation?
