Simply put, No. Often times, leaders may find themselves in a situation where their capabilities are limited. At my agency, people with titles will solicit tactical advice from members of our team, who are not people of rank within the agency. In these instances, team members are asked to lead other agency members through a critical incident because of their experience. People with rank should look to those around them with such experience and use it for a successful resolution.
