In every organization, the need for a purposeful direction towards the attainment of goals requires coherent skills displayed by the personnel. Personnel are to possess people skills to be able to manage others through effective leadership, delegation and empowering. Someone must be held accountable for the actions of people under him/her, be it positive or negative.
Empowering management is the art of creating an environment within which a given leader’s or manager’s personnel can grow, learn, take initiatives and responsibilities, feel empowered enough to make decisions, take measured personal and professional risks, develop their autonomy, experiment new performance solutions, focus on achieving results and generally increase their organization’s value.
The leader coordinates, supervises and direct the activities of the team.
