In a previous life, I encountered executives who used the approach
quoted above. They believed that the pain of forcing people to try
again and again until they got it right was a good learning experience.
So I pose the question: "If the boss makes it easy for people to
produce the desired outcome, is he reinforcing of eroding long-
term organizational learning?"
If he shows people how to get the result, it might not stick as
long as if he forces them to figure it out themselves...
