Keith et al,

Is the tension that some in the organization do not trust others to make decisions either within or outside their roles' domains? If so, one proposal might be a probationary period during on boarding where a specific advise process is used. However, a better proposal might be strict adherence to the agreed upon rules of the constitution and allowing the emerging culture to defend itself against any residual command and control mentality that may be present. Over time, I imagine trust issues will either be replaced with well-merited trust or that those still clinging to command and control thinking will self-remove from the organization in favor of an environment more tolerant of that mindset.
