We have a saying at my company: We like to see managers get "bloodied up a bit” before moving them into more prominent leadership roles. If we believe someone has management potential, we will intentionally put him in a situation where he will encounter extreme conflict, opposition, or just plain ambiguity (which in and of itself can be very stressful).
