Moving from Power to Empowerment in Decision-Making

This chapter explores how a follower-centric framework empowers followers to constructively and collaboratively approach conflict to arrive at higher quality decisions in servant-led organizations.

Abstract: 

The focus of this chapter is a review of how effective decision-making works for followers in servant-led organizations, the role of consensus leadership, and how conflict resolution is addressed in this type of leadership.  Current literature examines servant leadership practices from the leader perspective. This chapter examines key processes from the follower lens. The authors explore how a follower-centric framework empowers followers to constructively and collaboratively approach conflict to arrive at higher quality decisions.
