MONTHLY INSIGHT: EMPOWERMENT
Each Newsletter starts with the Monthly Insight, one that connects to my blog for details and development ideas about the 9 Enneagram styles; the insight topic for October is Empowerment.
This blog was inspired by Ruth Landis' insights about Empowerment. Are we truly empowered? Do we confuse power with empowerment? You can read about how each of us, based on our Enneagram styles, can live more empowered lives. Ruth Landis is a Senior Member of the Enneagram in Business Network at TheEnneagramInBusiness.com
What is empowerment? If you do a google search on this word, you'll get 15,700,000 different documents to review, all of which say something slightly different. Although there is no common definition of what empowerment is and is not, there is agreement that empowerment involves increasing the truest strength of individuals and communities and often involves the empowered developing confidence in their own capacities. To be truly empowered, we have to challenge our assumptions about ourselves and the world and about the way things are and can be. Empowerment challenges our basic assumptions about power, influence, support, assistance, achievement, and success.
Empowerment is a dance between inspiration and resourcefulness. Today, make a list of your resources - inner and outer - and the many ways that you use these resources. Then, think about something you've wanted to do but resisted doing because you thought it might not work out. Pull from your list of resources and take bold action now without worrying about the outcome.
