Regardless of profession, success of subordinates should be celebrated. Effective leadership involves empowerment of those working beside you. Sharing knowledge, ideas, and thoughts is part of being a leader. Much like your own children, your job is to make them better than you through transformational leadership. Empowerment should not be viewed as competition or failure, but the by product of effective supervision. People typically feel a stronger sense of ownership and worth when entrusted to make important decisions. This in turn, makes them more productive in their roles. Cultivating this environment is essential to being an effective leader.
