Why Is It So Hard to Accept That Our Project Is in Trouble?

In this episode, Ricardo talks about the difficulty of recognizing a project in crisis and offers three reasons why this is challenging. First, cultural stigma prevents leaders from admitting failure, as it can imply incompetence. Secondly, the belief that problems can be solved unnoticed is misleading since recovering from a crisis requires much more effort than avoiding it. Third, fear of job loss causes individuals to hide problems. Accepting a crisis is crucial to changing the project's direction and finding solutions. Ricardo explains that dealing with projects requires a unique mindset, confidence, and discipline to recognize and resolve problems effectively.
