Discussing Choice and Consequences

Some compelling discussion ensued from my Jan. 25 post on Choice and Consequences which read, “You have the freedom of choice, but you don’t have the freedom of the consequences of your choices. We should talk.”

Well Dr. Gregory Molnar, Clinical Neuroscientist & Industrial Fellow at the University of Minnesota did want to talk! He wrote, “This quote reminds me of a good old fashion concept called accountability. In leadership it is a privilege and responsibility to lead. The privilege to make the decisions and the responsibility of owning the outcomes…”

While I was referring to the individual and their personal consequences, Greg takes it to the next level and he is absolutely spot on.  Leaders too have the freedom of choice, but not the freedom of the consequences impacting their team from the choices he or she has made.

Keep the comments coming!
