The "lead" situation comes up when things don't go according to plan and
feathers get ruffled or feet start getting dragged. Then the "lead" (you
in this case) will probably have to take some decisions in a semi
dictatorial fashion, stop the dissent and get things moving. It's not
pleasant but it's necessary and someone's got to do it. Egos might be
brusied but it's not always to please everyone all the time.

Kenneth's statement was worded a little sarcastically but I think it was
correct. If there's no one willing a priori to take the blame if things
go bad, no one will take initiatives to move things forward.
