Role-playing a scenario before the leader acts.
Celebrating a key accomplishment.
Challenge might require you to:
Solicit ideas from the leader to create a better process.
Confront the leader about why a deadline was missed.
Hold the leader accountable.
Urge the leader to take on a difficult situation.
