Empower Don’t Grab Power is #LeadMorale Global Chat Topic
Many leaders still see leadership primarily as power. Yet when leaders focus on having power, what response will they get from employees? High engagement? Top performance? Don’t count on it. Outside of the traditional military setting, today’s employees don’t care about following orders. They say, “Empower don’t grab power. Engage my talents. Mentor my career.” They see power-focused leaders as self-absorbed and selfish. They leave companies and leaders that don’t engage and empower them.
