Participative Leadership ...
Participative leaders accept input from one or more group members when making decisions and solving problems, but the leader retains the final say when choices are made. Group members tend to be encouraged and motivated by this style of leadership. This style of leadership often leads to more effective and accurate decisions, since no leader can be an expert in all areas. Input from group members with specialized knowledge and expertise creates a more complete basis for decision-making.

ohh, I didn't realize I was supposed to leave a message here.... but here it is.
I would love to do more to help, but with other things going on in my life right now I don't think I can start a group here right now. :D I'm all about participating when I can though.
