Hang The Out to Dry!

This leader asks his team member for advice and then takes the advice, applies it and when it does not work, hangs them out to dry saying 'team member X told me to do it'.

What to do? Remind the boss that they asked for advice, it was their decision to act on it. You should not have to take the fall for your boss - they are in that role to absorb what comes at them no matter where they sought advice.
