Sounds simple. It isn't. There are many managers who make decisions which cause problems. As you know, it is very difficult in life and in the workplace to make decisions that keep everybody happy. In fact, there will be some times when this is just not possible.

Obviously, the best decisions or solutions are the ones that resolve the problem and don't create new problems. You stand a better chance of making good decisions to resolve problems when you have explored the feasible choices and the consequences of those choices on all people to be affected by the decision or solution. This will not always work, but it is way better than the alternative.

A useful question I have explored with many managers when they are describing a problem which is causing them stress, is to ask, "Who owns the problem? You or your people?" My point being that you need to explain to people why this is both your and their problem and why it is in both your and their interests to find a resolution.
