A leader can either be empowering or diminishing.
People love working for bosses who are liberating and secretly (or openly) detest working for a diminishing leader.
An empowering leader releases others to do their best work by restraining himself. He or she understands that to get the best out of the teams, every employee needs to contribute at their highest level of performance.
The focus is on listening to people rather than telling them what to do. A leader who shows restraint allows her team to communicate their ideas in a meeting rather than taking up all the space to communicate her opinions.
Liberating Leaders Openly Admit Mistakes
An empowering leader not only takes responsibility for his actions and decision but also insists on learning from them.
Employees shrink back when their bosses test them for answers instead of ideas. Ask questions and be open to learning from your teams. Nobody enjoys working for a know-it-all.
You don’t have to give the answers. Just provide enough information and to help people discover and see the opportunity for themselves.
Expect The Best From The Team
There is no compromise. Irrespective of the outcome, the leader expects the team to rise up to challenges and give their best.
People get stronger and smarter when they are challenged. The intelligence in your organization will grow when the people are stretched just beyond their current ability.A
When you believe in your people and (obviously) in your own leadership abilities, you will challenge the entire organization to set the bar high.
When you operate at this level, you will get more out of your teams than they know they are capable of giving.
