Effeciency of undefining the approach to complete task
"Conversely, leaders should help team members understand the project's importance and ultimate objective but leave the exact approach to the discretion of the team." This is really interesting and whilst I agree this a great way to encourage collaboration and a team approach, often internal, differing view points as to what the approach is can cause inefficiency in getting the job done on time. I think what needs to be qualified by this statement is that the creativity as to how the approach is taken should be left to team members but clarity regarding role AND timeframes need to be set and agreed upon by all team members and leaders at the outset. This will ensure productivity, higher collaboration and efficiency.
