Team leaders need to always work with their members and make sure that their inputs fit into the perspective of the project. With this approach, members will be willing, motivated and have the chance to provide useful information, make it happen and see that their leaders recommends it.There is also the issue of cultural difference element. Managers should be aware of this factor considering that employees and members come from different cultural backgrounds, religion and beliefs etc. for instance, in other countries people have more holiday time than it is in the America.
