Which if these three management systems is the best? 1. You have absolute authority over yourself and others, but no responsibility for what happens as a result of your decisions. 2. You are held responsible for the actions of yourself and others, but have no authority to tell those other people what to do. 3. You have limited authority, and are held responsible for the actions of only those people over whom you have authority. Many situations that cause people to get frustrated or angry result from an imbalance between responsibility and authority. Does anyone have any stories from the office, or family, where things went wrong because of such an imbalance?
