Is the door really open? Leaders who adopt an empowering leadership style share power and give more autonomy to subordinates [ 34 ]. Transactive memory from daily rounds and previous resuscitations were the predicate for both the coordination of efforts that is, knowing what to do, feeling comfortable acting independently even before an order was issued and the real-time clinical problem solving that is, everyone in the room felt safe to speak up and offer opinions about what to do next based on accumulated, pooled experience of the team.

Although studies of team transactive memory in organizations have focused on the benefits of member specialization, building in a certain degree of overlapping knowledge so that members can substitute for one another as necessary may be especially important for critical care teams where team membership changes on a daily basis and non-routine, time-sensitive, life-threatening decisions are commonplace.
