Empowered Leadership

EMPOWERED LEADERSHIP

ACT! Authority | Competence | Trust

Leadership is a relationship — a relationship between those who choose to lead and those who choose to follow. In her handbook and audio, Dr. Robin talks about some of the ways you can make that leader-follower relationship an empowering one.

Empowered Leadership Workbook and eBook

Dr. Robin learned through research that empowerment, as defined in practice, includes three relational concepts — Authority | Competence | Trust.

  • Authority is the right to make decisions appropriate for your work role.
  • Competence is the skills you need to carry out your job tasks, as well as the ability to learn to do your work better.
  • Trust includes fairness in a respectful relationship between you, your managers, your co-workers and your company.

Authority | Competence | Trust

You have to have all three in the work relationship for people to experience it as empowering.

The Leadership Trait Questionnaire included in the handbook, and packaged with the downloadable Mp3 files, helps you gain insight into your experience of authority, competence and trust at work.

Dr. Robin shares the practical results from robust research about decision-making biases to watch out for when you have authority; she explains the difference between achievement orientation and perfectionism when developing competencies; and she shares three different kinds of trust so you can decide who, when and how much to trust others in your work context. There’s also information about trust in the multicultural context that encourages thoughtful reflection and conversations. The combination of practical research-based suggestions within this interactive handbook makes it a helpful resource.
