Assunto:  Use of "only"
 
Mensagem:  The study was carried out in a 10-employee group, of which the manager was the most engaged.

The study was carried out in a 10-employee group, of which the manager was the one that interacted/participated most.

And other ways.
Your previous posting gave exactly that impression of that the supervisor was a one-of-a-kind in the group, so I assumed he was he leader, the one to report and analyze the group.
In your follow-up reply it became evident that he was also one to be analyzed, he was part of the group.
I avoided the use of "only", since it wouldn´t do much by way of incentive to the others. 
And perhaps not would do justice as well, singling him out, it could be understood that others had 'zero' participation, or were willingly there, almost sabotaging the process, or lacking the energy to learn, etc... 
Unless it is what you meant, of course.

Thanks for the feedback.
