    A couple of major problems they would have would be not discussing situations and instead just "going for it" (whatever the situation may be) and another would probably be having the same management style. The first would be a problem because as the old expression states "Two heads are better than one." This means that 2 different views on things are better than just one. That is why everyone from Presidents to Prime Ministers, to Cardinals has lower level management type people to advise them. Also, by having two people with the same management style may help the company or organization runs a certain way, it may not be able to attract and retain the best employees because of it. Some people just respond better to so0me personalities and management styles than others.
    To come over the situation of a problem with having similar ideas, I would do one of two things; no in fact I would do two things. Have them read books and take quizzes and write mini-essays on different management styles (other than their own), and have an outside consultant meet with them every couple of weeks to discuss what their plans are and to see how their doing. This would be analyzed via a pre-made, expertly designed matrix.
