Building a participative leadership culture
You’re a manger leading a medium-sized team of about 20 people.
Last week, your director held a meeting with all the managers in the organization. She just attended a big participative leadership conference, and she’s convinced that the organization needs to create a more participative leadership environment.
She’s given all the managers a week to research some participative leadership practices and report back to her.
