By definition, leaders cannot wait. If they do, they are not leaders, but merely followers. I think initiative takes a little bit of faith bathed in risk.
As a leader, one of the most frustrating things is to have someone on my team not take the initiative to make things happen. Instead they sit back and wait for direction, or constantly need my approval that their path or ideas are right.
