520    The boss/subordinate relationship is an age-old problem 
       cited in almost every management book and on-the-job 
       survey as an area rife with dishonesty and inefficiency. 
       All too often, subordinates spin the truth for those above
       while bosses fail to establish the conditions required for
       subordinates to tell it to them straight. The end result 
       is warped communication, corrupt internal politics, 
       illusionary teamwork, pass-the-buck accountability, and 
       personal dispiriting-and the company is always the big 
       loser. Don't Kill the Bosses! reveals the trap created 
       when people fail to differentiate between the positives of
       hierarchical structure and the negatives of hierarchical 
       relationships. Far from being opposed to hierarchy, the 
       authors believe strongly that an accurate and cleanly 
       defined organization chart is vital. But they show how to 
       implement an alternative model of hierarchy: two-sided 
       accountability. Drawing on case studies from their 
       consulting practice, Culbert and Ullmen show how this new 
       model leads to a freer flow of information, more creative 
       problem-solving, and quicker response to changing 
       conditions. Unlike other books that acknowledge boss/
       subordinate relationships as a systematic, continuing 
       problem and offer skill development suggestions for 
       dealing with it, Don't Kill the Bosses! tells how to think
       about the problem in a way that will enable readers to 
       understand the steps they need to take to change things. 
       It diagnoses what's missing in boss/subordinate 
       relationships, connects what's wrong with them to personal
       and organizational outcomes, and defines the whole new 
       mentality required to make them work successfully.
