Watch what you ask for…

Many people want the freedom and authority to make their own decisions about what they are responsible for. This is a valid expectation and the best teams grant authority along with responsibility. However, responsibility with authority cuts both directions. Great teammates recognize when the decisions they made were not the best ones. The freedom to decide comes at the cost of being able to pass blame to someone else for a poor choice that costs the team.
