A critical skill in leadership is the responsibility,it's for decisions made and results achieved. We must remember to share the glory, but take responsibility when so things don't go well. A true leader empowers people to take risks to solve problems and create processes. They review plans in order to be informed and use their experience to provide feedback and guidance.
