Why should a leader who has worked hard for many years willingly choose to share his or her power and seemingly cede control over many aspects of the business? There are lots of reasons. Basically they all fall under two general categories: employee empowerment and leadership efficiency. Much has been written about empowerment as a way to engage and motivate employees. It's simple: people who believe that what they think and do matters are likely to feel they have a stake in the success of the overall business. They see how their contributions bring value to the organization as a whole, so they care about results.
