“Great leaders are important here because they understand that the art of leadership is to make as few decisions as possible and to instead teach others how to make those decisions. The more decisions get pushed across the organization to the people who must carry them out, the more engagement will increase.”

Decision-making, from a leader, can become too intrusive for employees and cuts time off of roles a leader should be fulfilling. A leader is needed to manage employees, make sure members are not demotivated, overworked, or unhappy, not making all the decisions and ordering employees around.
