One of the key traits of an authentic leader is the ability to empower others.
This seems like a scary task for some and understandably so! How do you someone else?
Firstly, do not overthink it. There are two parts to empowerment, one is to give some the authority or power to do something. The other is make someone feel stronger and more confident.
Here are six simple methods for you to use going forward:
• Always listen, and offer advice where you can
• Affirm their strengths
• Be transparent
• Teach and mentor continuously
• Encourage and display resilience
• Listen to their advice and take it on board
See?! Easier than you may have thought!
