discussed openly.
Being effective with this type of leadership requires five rules. The first is to keep
communication open. The leader needs to ensure all participants give ideas freely. The
second rule is to focus on the discussion keeping it productive. The leader needs to make
sure to balance ideas and keep everything on topic. The leader cannot allow the topic to
