Why is it so important to go through the chain of command when dealing with issues or problems as opposed to going right to the top leader of the organization?  
Organizational hierarchies are established to provide an official framework for all the different activities and/or components in an organization. Each unit in the hierarchy has different responsibilities and missions, and accountability is maintained by the reporting done from level-to-level up through the chain of command. It is important to follow the appropriate chain of command when trying to resolve a problem because it helps to maintain this accountability and the problem may be resolved quicker. Skipping levels in the chain of command can cause resentment among individuals in the leadership hierarchy. It may also delay resolution of the problem because the resources needed to resolve it may be controlled by individuals lower in the hierarchy. If further assistance is needed, the issue will be taken forward to the next higher decision-maker in the chain of command.
