A great quality of any leader is the act of empowering others. Empowerment can be defined as the process of gaining strength and confidence and can often be attributed to being given authority or power. Empowerment can come in many different forms and is something that can be built upon over time. Many leaders, bosses, mentors, coaches and teachers are in a position that they can influence many people around them.
