Empowerment in Leadership



Many people think you need to earn a degree to be able to lead. But if you read the book of Robin Sharma: ”The Leader who had no title”, you should be inspired enough to realize that you are indeed a leader. The leader can be anyone, from a street sweeper to a housewife to a nurse to anyone who is helping someone else or the society as a whole. You don’t need big words to define leadership. It’s simple how you are adding values to people’s life. It’s more about what are you mostly passionate about even if it is risky, as long as it is empowering you.

Many people find it difficult to acknowledge that leadership is no longer about your position. No matter who you are, you are always making a difference in people’s life. It could be bad or good. YOU should know what you are doing and how your presence is impacting in this society.  Everyday is a learning process where you find yourself evolving and learning new things. If you observe, each person or situation has something to teach us. A leader knows how to empower others rather than practicing disengagement.

The role of empowerment in leadership

People fear to give powers to others. True leaders have no fear in giving power to others. They create more leaders. They practice empowerment. Simply, they leverage empowerment by enabling others to discover their true potential. Such leaders can totally feel secured enough as they encourage others to feel better. They do not need to take the credits as they believe in empathy. There is no need to hoard credit, power, recognition, or control.

Compared to leaders who are scared who are afraid to lose their power, true leaders have an abundance mindset. They go on to create more leaders.
