For an organization to compete successfully, it needs to be able to rely on the knowledge, skills and creativity of its people. So, it’s vital that businesses encourage their people to take responsibility for themselves and for their own workloads.
But, how can you give people the freedom to do this, while also making sure that they deliver what you want?
The answer is empowerment.
In this Skillbook, we discuss what empowerment is, and how you can use delegation to empower your people. We’ll also look at two scenarios, and ask you to apply what you know about empowerment and delegation to each one.
In just one hour, you’ll learn:
What empowerment is, and how it can benefit your people and your organization.
How empowered or disempowered you are.
How to develop an empowered team.
How to use “empowered delegation” to improve workplace performance.
