The best leaders are obsessed with empowering the right leaders: Find them, develop them and empower them to lead. The greatest example of empowering leaders is Jesus. Yesus menemukan mereka, membangun mereka selama 3 tahun dan mengutus mereka untuk menjadikan segala bangsa murid-Nya. [THE GREAT COMMISSION.]
Two currencies of empowering leaders:
#1. COMMUNICATE WITH CLARITY
What I am doing is aligned with our mission. What I am doing is important.
Clarity without trust produces fear and inaction. Orang takut mengambil resiko untuk melakukan sesuatu.
#2. EXTEND TRUST
I can take risk, I can experiment. I have the freedom to experiment with new things.
Trust without clarity produces work without direction. Busy work, but not the right thing.
How can I know I can trust someone? by TRUSTING someone.
#3. GUARDING THE VALUES
#4 SURENDER CONTROL
Give your people freedom to be creative and make decision.
Most leaders delegate tasks; when you delegate tasks you create followers. When you delegate authority, you create leaders.
If you empower people, there is no limit for growth. If you don’t empower leaders, then you’ll become the bottleneck of your organization, you become the limiting factor.
The strength of your organization is not a reflection of what you control, but it’s a reflection who you empower.
As a leader, you make decision on what only you can make the decision and delegate the rest. Push as much decisions deeper in the organization,
- What are the decisions that only you can make?
- Name three decisions that you can delegate.
