Developing Empowerment Leaders

An empowerment leader is someone who creates mutual trust, and not just someone who only manages.

In organizations that have realized empowerment, managers are functioning as empowerment leaders. They are fully aware of the importance of developing their staff, and have shifted their style from the traditional command and control to trust and followership (empowerment leadership). They promote and support their staff to think on their own, and create plans to achieve tasks, and then to execute those plans.

They start the journey towards becoming an empowerment leader, by learning the basics of a manager.

In order to develop an empowerment leader, confirming the basics of management, which can be called the engine of a leader/manager, providing business results, creating organizations, and developing staff, correctly understanding why these are all important. With that, they can foster leadership that provides the maximum capabilities of staff and the organization.
