@Moldova - That is nice. I have to say that some managers like to share their power with the employees by having a consensus approach to solving a problem.
This management style is great when you are dealing with experienced employees or employees that are highly skilled. Sometimes the employees know more about the technical aspects of the job than the manager does and having this approach with those employees gives them respect and makes them more likely to come up with a great idea.
The only downside is that the manager is dependent on his employees to come up with a solution and some people view this style of management as being slightly weaker than other management styles.
I think that a lot of companies now offer personality tests like those Myers- Briggs tests in order to see what type of leadership potential a manager actually has.
