Empowering Team Members

T‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‌‌he purpose of this discussion is to discuss and apply concepts from the assigned readings in Module 4: Week 4. Wheelan (2020) asserts that empowering leaders should expect team members to challenge their authority and demand greater involvement with running the team. Write a post that addresses the following questions: 1. As you reflect upon your reading and research from our previous discussion on conflict, what are some of the important strategies that leaders might consider for encouraging such challenges to authority while not being disruptive to the overall team? 2. What are some of the other ways ‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‌‌in which leaders can empower team members? 3. Research and describe an example of an empowered team.
