Ep 25 | Empower People with Belief
Show Notes


Self-empowerment happens when you start believing you can. When was the last time you had somebody help you believe in yourself and your potential? 

Join Mike Acker on this episode of the Advance podcast as he shows you how to empower oneself with the belief by walking you through a framework that tells you how to do that. He also talks about micromanagement and how it can bring employee motivation levels down. Listen in today and learn how to empower yourself and your people to set them up for ultimate success!


Why is belief so important?


Belief in oneself brings support. When you empower someone to believe in themselves, you bring them to believe in themselves.

How does micromanagement bring employee motivation down?


If you're a micromanager, know that you essentially tell your team that you don't believe in them. It tells them that they don't know what they're doing, that you really are needed, and you're the person in charge. It drains the morale out of people.  

How do you empower people with belief?


Give your belief to them.


Stay vague when you give your belief to someone. They are then able to fill it in with their definition of success, with their definition of potential, not with your definition of potential. Don't fill that mold for them, don't create that role for them. Instead, put the backing behind them, put the push behind them, so they can find their own mold, their own role, their own place.


Peep in it. This means that when you believe in someone, it's not a one-time deal. And you don't just walk up to someone and say, I believe in you. Stay connected and check on them sometimes.




“Belief is support backed by actions.”
