THE BUCK STOPS HERE!
Many of us are familiar with president Truman's famous phrase "the buck stops here". The phrase refers to the fact that the President has to make the decisions and accept the ultimate responsibility for those decisions
I good sign of a great leader is that he or she will assume the responsibility for the ultimate success or failure of an endeavor. I am so sick and tired of the fault blaming game. A good leader knows how and when to listen to people's opinions, views, feelings, but ultimately he or she will have to make a final decision based on good conscience and the welfare of everyone, not just him or her self.
Final decisions may not be popular or agreeable with everybody else's but in the end we need to grow up and act as true leaders. This implies that on ocassions we may have to apologize and correct the course of action. Never is too late.
