Effective leadership involves decision making from the whole team, not just the leader—this isn’t news to most of us. But it’s really quite amazing what a little group brainstorming can do! And the benefits are endless; 1) You’re able to tap into dozens of potential solutions as opposed to just a few from the leader; 2)The leader might not even be aware of certain needs of a company until a team member brings it up; 3) Since the solutions are born from the team and not just one person (i.e. the leader) they will more likely be accepted and practiced among the whole group. This participative approach to solving not just conflicts, but the day-to-day business issues that pop up, should be an integral part of any impactful, effective leadership training.
