THAT is a familiar well framed 'adornment' to be found on the Tables of many Managers.
Most instances, it CAN result in subordinates 'suppressing/hiding problems' for fear of NOT being listened/heeded to - as they do not have solutions.
It can also be an 'easy cover' for a Manager to escape 'tackling problems' or 'providing solutions'.
Truly - the 'adornment' - while being catchy/flashy can be unproductive !
IF the Manager has developed his subordinates, the 'adornment' would be a 'good motivator for the subordinates to take initiatives to work out solutions' and a 'proud display of the Manager's confidence in them'
