management which process to collaborative activities and performance outcomes
are monitored by the leader. Leader can be viewed in terms of the nature of
motivation, decision, communication, and control method and the development of

freedom of decision to team members as they are operating the perfect level on
their own. The manager don’t interfere their decisions but manager support if
they need the idea. (Mullins, 2010)Benefit

subordinates are highly skill and motivated to accomplish the goals.
Subordinates manage their time well and have the knowledge they need to
