It is a difficult choice with no clear right answer. That the person who is supposed to be making the choices is choosing not to is not helping you in any way. If you choose something that ends up with a positive outcome, that person is going to claim credit and rewards. If you choose something that ends up with a negative outcome, that person is going to blame you for acting in the absence of their leadership. Either way, you wind up hurt. When there is no right answer, the right answer is to do whatever it takes to keep yourself safe. Sometimes that means acting on behalf of an absent leadership. Sometimes that means standing aside to permit that same leadership to collect the consequences of their (in)actions. Sometimes that means walking away from something that was never meant to benefit you in the first place. It always means making a choice.
