Empowering others is a great leader’s strength. Whether as an individual or part of a team, people who feel empowered can achieve amazing successes.
The greatest example of empowerment is found in John 21. Jesus had been crucified and resurrected. Jesus seeks out His disciples and finds them fishing.
Jesus returns and reminds Peter of the lesson he learned over the previous three years. Jesus tells Peter, “Feed my lambs.” Then, “Take care of my sheep,” and finally, “Feed my sheep.”
Peter had been discouraged, disheartened and demoralized through the crucifixion of Christ. But Jesus reminded him of the power in his capabilities and purpose.
To empower our employees, we need to remind them, that they, too, have the tools they need. And those tools are gifts given by God.
