When the “quality movement” began to take hold in American businesses in the 1980s, many managers were forced to reevaluate their approach to leadership. The mandate shifted from traditional authority and control to a model that encouraged a more collaborative approach that engaged employees in greater dialogue and decision-making. For many managers, it was not an easy transition, and many still struggle with it at times.
