When you are working in a team, the first thing you have to do is to let youngsters be independent. There should not be a blocker or a god-like figure under the shadow of whom they are living.
This hierarchy and living under the shadow of someone is a big blocker for the growth of youngsters and the organization.
It should be told to the youngsters that they are part of a team and not under the shadow of anyone. They are independent to question, give their feedback.
This whole culture of designation is screwing up the independence and free-thinking for the organization.
