Imagine being hired to manage a business, but given no power.
Whatever decision had to be made, all you could do was call the Owners.. Call them, and wait. Maybe yourr call would go to voice mail Maybe you would not hear back for days.
So, you were hired to manage. The staff looked up to you. Now, everyone sees that you are a big disappointment. You have not power. You have no authority.
So why do you care about the business?
