We all witnessed the storming of the US Capitol.
I've seen this scenario play out albeit on smaller scales in organizations that I have worked within and consulted with.

Some questions to consider
How is this leader hurting your orgnaistaion?
Does this leader represent your organisation's core values
Why is the behavior of the role leader being tolerated?
