From the Paper:

"When the manager feels they are in a rut, the best thing they may be able do as a leader is seek the advice of their subordinates. Give the subordinates the chance to contribute to the risk management process. Subordinate employees today all appreciate having their input consulted, and they may often be the best mediators in the conflict resolution process, and certainly are valuable resources when the manager may feel momentarily at a loss. The key to effective and empowering managing is not to dominate employees, but to rely on those subordinate and team members. The best leader I this day and age will also be a follower. The ability to delegate responsibility, or give up total authority, is an essential ability of the empowering manager in this day and age. The employee or subordinates are autonomous, and can effectively contribute their feedback to the team setting. Ultimately, empowering employees is the best thing a leader can do as a manager can do in this day and age."
