I did my first unpublished piece on empowered workplaces 40 years ago. It wasn't until 25 years later that I published in "Appreciative Leadership" the technology of making it possible. The essential definition of technology is the science and applications of practical techniques.
With the current incredible reality that over 80% of leaders still operate from command and control, we finally have the technologies to make empowerment reality, along with the amazing performance benefits possible.
Now it's just a matter of leadership growth. We know how to guide leaders in the cultivation of empowered, nimble, flourishing teams and organizations. Exciting times indeed.
