Perfect in Power by Phil Hanson


Phil Hanson suggests that the idea of leadership through care and growth is just as upside-down and counter-cultural as anything in the Sermon on the Mount. Empowerment is about creating a culture in which people understand the vision and willingly take on responsibilities with the freedom to do it their way. Business life is full of behaviours that contradict these ideas. High on the list is micro-management along with the culture of fear and the practice of appearing to give away responsibility but then intervening and dabbling.
