  • Dan Erwin says:

    Scot: This may not fit business interests, but the German philosophers from Hegel on down stressed duty and responsibility. I had to chuckle at your post because I see that focus so seldom. Still, it’s right on target. As you know, employees usually want responsibility–but they also want authority along with it. And that’s right on philosophically, psychologically–and Jack Welch would say, “businesswise.”
