I once sat in on a large meeting where a leader railed against the lack of support from the top executives. Rather than asking the obvious - "What can I do to resolve the matters in my span of control?" - the attitude appeared to be that nothing could be done locally. [I could think of around five things.]
The only perceived solution, however, would have to come from those uncaring rascals at the top.
That attitude is the real problem. I see it more and more nowadays.
Never assume that the cavalry is coming.
