How do you empower your team to be more creative?

It’s very important to me that our engineers feel motivated, which comes down to feeling empowered and making a contribution. So I speak to them a lot one-on-one to understand . . . ‘What’s really going for you right now? What keeps you excited to go to work? What things really frustrate you?’ . . . The key is communication.
