Are you wondering how to increase the energy of those around you and encourage your team to go further than they ever thought possible? Amplify your people more than ever before by incorporating empowered leadership into your company ethos — because the more empowered you are as a leader, the more you can inspire and empower your team to reach their fullest potential. Chances are, what you’re already doing is amazing, but empowered leaders also know there is always room for expansion. Below is your 8-step guide to empowered leadership when you’re ready to ignite, expand, and inspire.
1. Acknowledge and validate
We each have the power to help people feel seen and heard, and, as a leader, it’s your responsibility to use that power for good. If you find yourself in a challenging situation with someone, try normalizing their behavior or consciously put yourself in their shoes. Remember that effective communication isn’t just about speaking clearly; it’s about listening. The more you can expand your mindset to relate to and normalize the people around you (especially those under your leadership), the more their energy will increase.
