As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
~ Bill Gates, American business magnate, philanthropist, the world's third richest man (as of 2008), and chairman of Microsoft

The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
~ President Theodore Roosevelt

The critical point in the career of many a leader is the point when he/she must either learn to empower, or cease to grow in scope and capacity.
~ Anonymous

An empowered organization is one in which individuals have the knowledge, skill, desire, and opportunity to personally succeed in a way that leads to collective organizational success.
~ Stephen Covey, author, professional speaker, consultant, and management-expert

I believe a leader's success can be defined as the maximum utilization of the abilities of those under him/her.
~ John Maxwell, author, consultant, and professional speaker

Virtually every company will be going out and empowering their workers with a certain set of tools, and the big difference in how much value is received from that will be how much the company steps back and really thinks through their business processes ... thinking through how their business can change, how their project management, their customer feedback, and their planning cycles can be quite different than they ever were before.
~ Bill Gates

Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
~ General George Smith Patton, Jr.

The beauty of empowering others is that your own power is not diminished in the process.
~ Barbara Colorose, author

Today many American corporations spend a great deal of money and time trying to increase the originality of their employees, hoping thereby to get a competitive edge in the marketplace. But such programs make no difference unless management also learns to recognize the valuable ideas among the many novel ones, and then finds ways of implementing them.
~ Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Hungarian-born psychology professor and department head

In our ever-expanding role as leaders, we should approach our jobs with a willingness to nurture our employees to maturity in respect to the work we empower to them.
~ Anonymous

The vision is really about empowering workers, giving them all the information about what's going on so they can do a lot more than they've done in the past.
~ Bill Gates

Empowerment means giving power - not just to DO things but to participate in major decisions - to be listened to with respect. Empowerment is also the natural shift of power - to knowledge, away from position. Empowerment normally means letting others make decisions that you would normally make.  You can also empower leadership in the sense of encouraging employees to think for themselves and to challenge upwards.
~ Anonymous

The great leaders are like the best conductors - they reach beyond the notes to reach the magic in the players.
~ Blaine Lee, life coach, author, and professional speaker

If there is any one axiom that I have tried to live up to in trying to become successful in business, it is the fact that I have tried to surround myself with associates that know more about business than I do. This policy has always been very successful and is still working for me.
~ Monte L. Bean, author
