Managers who suppress(squelch) insights from low-tiered employees run the risk of suppressing their creativity. Therefore, smothering is the correct choice. The other two, fomenting and sparking are exact opposites of what we are looking for. The second part of the sentence begins with conversely. This means we should expect the opposite idea to be expressed in this sentence fragment. So, these very same managers would not suppress the ideas that flow down from the top brass. So unquestioningly embrace, is the correct choice. Arbitrarily denounce is the exact opposite of what we want and there is no clue in the sentence to suggest that they would conditionally approve the ideas. So we reject them.
