  This can be a complicated question. The answer may have to do with a lack of manager training, insecurities, ego, fear of change or fear of relenquishing absolute control over their employees, direction from supervisors, etc..
An effective leader (or manager) has positive working relationships with their employees. I love making fun of the popular television show, "undercover boss." What these corporate leaders do in the show is what they should be doing already (minus the disguises, of course).
A true leader is visible to employees, open to contact and advice, shares the glory, recognizes employee contribution, shoulders the blame, etc.
Unfortunately, we seem to have very few true leaders. Those at the top need to recognize the problems with management and take appropriate action. Unfortunately, often they don't know what that should be. Too often, those in positions of leadership fail to see how human capital can translate into monetary capital.
