It is not unusual for organizations to have several people in leadership roles who participate in collaborative decision-making for the benefit of the entire organization. Leading teams of diverse individuals is a significant challenge, and negotiating individual strengths, weaknesses, and personalities can be difficult. Nonetheless, as managers, it is your responsibility to effectively lead teams through establishing expectations designed to motivate individuals, fostering critical decision-making skills, and improving communication and collaboration among teammates.
