The alternative is to create a culture around taking responsibility instead. Most organizations are happy to offer responsibility to anyone willing to take it, but we all need to learn to do a better job of encouraging leadership and positive action, regardless of title or org chart tier.
And the companion to taking responsibility is relentlessly giving away credit. When we offer others a chance to shine, they're more likely to connect, to enroll in the journey, and to join the next chance they have to do so.
