Leaders motivate
In different ways
Some never work
But one is okay.

The fear of demotion
Or plan of retirement
Are not as effective
As empowerment.

Being sustained
With affirmation.

Built up for the long run
Allowing people
To take ownership
And fly like an eagle.

Enabling them with
Power over time
And giving guidance
To make the climb.

    This poem is about empowerment. It is a leadership style that inspires a team over long periods of time. While on earth, Jesus followed the empowerment type of leadership by selecting twelve disciples and giving them the authority to give sight to the blind, heal the sick, and feed the poor.
