The Empowered Leader
The very nature of leadership is such that a person must be empowered in order to lead. This is not to say that a leader must have formal authority over others, and we all know managers who are not leaders. As Ken Blanchard said, “The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority”. Being an empowered leader means acting so that people are moved to action by your influence without overt displays of authority. Being an empowered leader starts with you – with you having the self-esteem, vision, mindset, and skills to lead. To be an empowered leader you must be able to organize, coordinate, understand motivations, and be a catalyst for action in the workplace.
