Empowerment is all about letting go so that others can get going

Empowerment is all about letting go so that others can get going. – Ken Blanchard 

Our district is a large, complex organization. We serve thousands of students and a community of tens of thousands. As the superintendent, I can’t (and shouldn’t) know everything that is happening in the district.

 

We have a strong organization with talented, dedicated people. My job is making sure each member of our team is empowered to do their job. We must hire well, cultivate talent, provide support for growth, and create internal accountability.  

 

Are you empowering those on your team? Are you inspiring them to grow and be better? Are you empowering them to challenge you so you can grow?
