Leaders must take Responsibility

Decision to fight Uhud outside Medina: Nabi sas actually wanted the battle fought in Medina but the Sahabah RA wanted to fight on Uhud. (Hadiths)

After the battle was lost, Nabi sas never told the sahabah RA, if you had taken my advice we would have fought in Medina and won or you never listened to me and see the mess we got into. He just remained silent and took the responsibility.

We as leaders often pass the blame when we fail, on to our subordinates but actually it does not change the result instead it makes the subordinates lose confidence and brings about a reluctance among them to make suggestions in the future for fear of criticism.

Actually the passing of blame on others without taking responsibility is a lack of confidence in ourselves and only result, is the people we deal with lose confidence in us.
