I guess the answer to my another question (Is it appropriate to use "I can be a little bit careless" when talking about work?) gives clear explanation about 2 types of management styles.
This is a similar question (NOT the same).
One of my friends is preparing to apply a position of manager in a company. He would like to describe himself as a cool guy that is high-level at times and willing to involve team members in decisions.
I am aware that "careless" is not a safe word for this kind of scenarios as it may imply meaning of "not taking or showing enough care and attention".
How about "hands-off manager"? Would the following sentence implies he is the democratic cool guy clearly and does not survey something like "he does not care about anything that would not reflect on him"?
I’m quite a hands-off manager.
