Invest power, do not just wield it.

Posted on July 8, 2015


The people around a great leader are not just governed, they’re empowered. They’re made to feel larger than themselves, and integral to the organization. A great leader invests power and authority into the people that leader serves, and entrusts that everyone will be as responsible with that power as the leader has been.

One catch. This must be done in a values-based organization. Results-based, or performance-based organizations will corrupt the power distribution.
