Have you ever heard the word empowerment? I don't think most people know what it means. Either people think it is some bizarre management term, or that it means having other people do things.
Empowerment is not about assigning people tasks, it is about giving them the power and resources to be successful. The leader becomes the servant, making sure the follower has everything they need to get the job done. Effective leaders serve their followers.
How do you empower others?
