In today’s entry Maxwell asserts empowering people as a necessary function of effective leaders. Without the ability for subordinates to make their own decisions a leaders “create barriers within the organization” people can’t overcome. Maxwell also states there are three reasons why leaders resist empowerment, they are: desire for individual job security, fear of change, and lack of personal self-esteem.
