Engage: ‘What do you think?’ The moment you ask that question, you convey that you value the person you are speaking with. Enrolling people into your vision and providing them with a sense of purpose can be achieved by learning what excites people, how they define success and doing what it takes to make them feel satisfied.
Empower: Allow access to information and resources needed for decision making. It gives your prospective leaders the ability to create, articulate and choose. This facilitates the ability to influence and helps improve self image.
Energise: Focus on opportunities as against constraints. Energise people by being responsive and acting in time. Speak your mind and maintain integrity between words and actions: it influences the willingness of others to believe that a goal is worthy and attainable.
Encourage: Encourage people to try new things and gain skills and knowledge. It helps them develop as members of society and the organisation. The best way to inculcate innovation is to encourage people into moderate risk-taking.
Entrust: Accept mistakes, walk the talk, volunteer information, share your feelings and demonstrate strong moral ethics through the display of impartial and non-partisan behaviour. Trust builds commitment. And while trust is difficult to build, it is very easy to destroy.
