Delegation vs. Empowerment

From the mind of Kirk Graham:

Don't just get better at delegating, improve your ability to empower. There is a huge difference between delegating and empowering.
Delegation: Assigning people to tackle your to-do list.
Empowerment: Allowing people to take ownership of a specific area.

Delegation is a managers job. Empowerment is a leaders job. Too many managers are mislabeled as leaders.
