When one relies on expert and reference power, has more impact in that the follower responds positively through internalized understanding or beliefs that create long-lasting impact on behaviour.
Empowerment – enables others to gain and use decision-making power.
Effective leaders empower other by providing them with the information, responsibility, authority, and trust to make decisions and act independently. They know that when people feel empowered to act, they tend to follow through with commitment and high-quality work.
