Interesting! I've been a big fan of disruptive leadership for years. One small difference I have with your comments though - I don't believe that companies empower employees. Employees have to accept power and be accountable for their actions. This is what allows co-creation. A leader can create an environment in which employees learn to empower themselves. This is different from the traditional idea of empowering employees simply by giving them new responsibilities without proper preparation. Marshall Goldsmith has a quick read in his blog post "Empowering Your Employees to Empower Themselves." Leading your people to take responsibility (self-empowerment) builds trust and loyalty while developing new capabilities and resources for the business. Is that what you meant? Can't wait for Part II
