A couple things:

  1. Leaders don’t want to look foolish with their reports. These tools are new to them and they may feel sheepish about trying these tools out with their staff.
  2. Their managers don’t use it or don’t believe in it. If their leaders don’t ask them about using the tools, efforts will be lost in the “Sea of plenty to do, and not enough time to do it”
