2017 Year of Empowerment
How do you make a difference when there is no agreement about the way forward and the conversations around you seem more and more divisive? If you are unwilling to use force, you are generally left resigned to living with things as they are. Transformational leadership, however, distinguishes power as the kind of speaking and listening that creates new possibilities and causes things to happen that were not going to happen in the prevailing context. Empowerment is a way of using that speaking and listening to wake others up to this unique kind of power - the use of speaking and listening that gives us access to generating new possibilities and new openings for action that make a positive difference in our world.
