AUTHORITY

19 Apr

Authority can be used in ways that bring liberty to people, not just limitation. Sometimes people think of authority as nothing more than telling others what they cannot do and keeping people in line. For example, a judge can use authority to release an innocent person from jail. A high school principal can use authority to obtain resources so that teachers are also to teach effectively. A manager can use authority to reward a worker’s performance and encourage creativity or excellence. So put in its best use, authority can be affirming and supportive rather than controlling and punitive. How are you inclined to use authority?Image
