OPINION: It was certainly a rough weekend for Southwest

On the heels of a weekend of flight cancellations, leadership analyst Tom Finegan weighed-in on the challenges facing Southwest Airlines.

"It was certainly a rough weekend for Southwest," says Finegan. "Customers, a bunch of employees were stranded as well. Its a tough conundrum. I think the issues that faced Southwest are probably a combination of a number of things. And clearly management did not have enough slack in the system to accommodate any blip. And when you have a blip, regardless of the cause, in the airlines they need to figure how to alternate staff and alternate source of their equipment. And they just could not get that done."

Tom Finegan explained his leadership principles in his new book Amplifiers.
