Chris Christie And His Bridge

The Governor of NJ, a possible presidential contender in the next election cycle, paid his own toll this week for controversial action taken by his staff over closure of a busy bridge for nothing more than political payback.

His comments have been both praised and panned. What would you have recommend he say instead or in addition? Should “bosses” be held accountable for what employees/staff do or say? Shouldn’t management be responsible for setting the tone and expectations of behavior in their workplace? How would you counsel him or any other public (or private) leader on this issue for their organization?
