Transcript of Enable Others to Act

Student Leadership Challenge Enable Others to Act Empower others by building trust so that everyone can be active participants in the group and feel like valued members
Develop other leaders' skills and capacities
Enable does NOT mean delegate What does it mean to Enable Others to Act? Foster collaboration by building trust and facilitating relationships
Strengthen others by increasing self-determination and developing competence Commitments of Leadership “The conductor of an orchestra does not make a sound… His true power derives from his ability to make other people powerful.” Benjamin Zander
– author of "The Art of Possibility” Why is this difficult sometimes? Difficulty trusting others to get things done; you would rather do them yourself
Power hungry - selfish desire to hold all the power to tell others what to do and receive all recogntion
These are NOT examples of effective leaders Build a trusting environment in which people trust you as a leader and trust one another as peers How do we Enable Others to Act? Trust-building activities
Hold one another accountable for completing tasks
Focus on relationships - get to know one another and make others realize you care about them and their efforts Help others realize their potential and gain confidence in leadership abilities Do not TELL people what to do. The capacity of individuals and organizations grows when people do things because they want to Give power away - power multiplies when shared
Provide choices - allow constituents greater decision-making authority and responsibility
Develop competence - help others to expand their skills and increase abilities
Assign critical tasks - we do our best when our work is important to success
Offer visible support - facilitate networking and recognize others for their effort (encourage the heart!) So... How do I do that? People + leadership experiences > developed leaders >

Person + leadership experiences > developed leader > change Wrap It Up •“The leader is the relentless architect of the possibility others can be.”
-Benjamin Zander "A monumental question for leaders in any organization to consider is: How much greatness are we willing to grant people?"
-Benjamin Zander bigger change References http://www.tsaweb.org/sites/default/files/u1/Enable%20Others%20to%20Act.pdf
