In my workplace, it seems that whenever there is an issue, the answer is always "it's personal responsibility". We were having a staff meeting discussing ways to improve communication between various groups and a member of the group with the most power said "it's personal responsibility for you to...". This argument always seems to stop the dialog - because after all, how do you argue against this? Is there a way to derail this argument without appearing to argue for anarchy?
