Leading Well is Empowering Others

Leading well is not about enriching yourself—it’s about empowering others. Only empowered people can reach their potential. When a leader can’t or won’t empower others, he creates barriers within the organization that followers cannot overcome.
When leaders fail to empower others, it is usually due to three main reasons:

1. Desire for Job Security
2. Resistance to Change
3. Lack of Self-Worth

The truth is that empowerment is powerful—not only for the person being developed, but also for the mentor. Enlarging others makes you larger. It is an impact you can experience as a leader as long as you are willing to believe in people and give your power away.
