Point: The boss may not be always right. But he is responsible to coordinate his team to contribute its best to the satisfaction of his boss. The team members should also be well informed of the targets and strategies set for the team. The members should have the freedom to suggest/recommend modifications to the set strategies. The boss who is ready to review the set strategy based on such suggestions will earn the trust of his team members and the result would be always beneficial to all.
