The Captain doesn't know.
When a rookie completes a task how many eyes are on them?
All of them.
They all say something.
How much responsibility does the rookie have?
When the Captain does a task how many eyes are on them?
What if he does something wrong?
A few say something.
How much responsibility does he have?
This keeps progressing. As ranks go up, responsibility goes up and oversight drops.
What does this mean to you?
You need to answer these questions.
Who do I answer to?
Who checks me?
Do I accept that check.
Remember, "because I say so" isn't justification.
It's a big world out there. You need people. People that will be honest and tell you that you're full of shit sometimes, your plan sucks, or you're wrong.
If not, then in your own mind your always right.
You don't know what you don't know. Admit it.
