Requesting contribution from others

“I don’t know what you think about this point, but I think <lots of opinion here>…” to me isn’t an effective way to request contribution from others. To me, it can be considered a violent act, especially if others are one’s subordinates.

“What do you think about this point?” at least opens up space for a contribution.

“Would you be willing to share your views on this point?” might be even more effective.
