“I am confident this approach will work, based on experience, but before we decide on our plan of action, I want to know your thoughts. Each of you sees the issue from a unique perspective, so let’s discuss. I want to hear your ideas and concerns. You may be seeing things I don’t see, and, collectively, we may end up with a better solution.”
