Every time I ask a team leader, whether they’re an executive or a front line manager: “Of all the questions and decisions that are asked by your team, what percentage of these could be directly answered by another team member?” I never get an answer below 50% - meaning that 1 in 2 questions that can, and should, be answered by someone else then the acting leader. Imagine that 50% of those answers are then answered by the wrong person at the wrong level, at the wrong time! Imagine how much energy, talent, mental effort and engagement is wasted!
That observation I made while accompanying executives and managers on the whether they answer and receive too many questions that could be answered by someone else then them, I decided to launch my movement “Empower Your Team” which is an invitation to redefine leadership and generate accountability. We all have the power to make our team evolve and the movement is an accelerator to that necessary evolution so everyone can fully and appropriately contribute.
The Empower Your Team Movement is an invitation to redefine leadership to create a culture of empowerment, innovation and engagement on a global scale. It’s a challenge given to leaders to push them to have the necessary conversations with their team and peers and apply those conversations to evolve from an expert posture to a coach posture, so that every decision is made on the appropriate level, by the right people and at the right moment! Be part of the conversation and be part of the evolution!
The movement is for any leader that has the intention to act, make a change, that understands the necessity of evolving from an expert to a leader-coach and that want to learn and apply the tools to make concrete changes in their leader posture. Whether you are an executive, HR partner or team member, you can get involved and engage in the movement and have a greater impact within your team!
