Empowerment Works: A Guide for Supervisors and Employees (How-To Book)
Empowering Your Employees
Just as we instill courage when we “en-courage,” we develop power when we “em-power.” Empowerment relies upon the willingness of employees at all levels of an organization to accept the responsibilities that accompany authority. Empowerment is a kind of democracy in the workplace. Like democracy, empowerment frees us to make decisions and take action. And like democracy, empowerment requires that we recognize and establish boundaries within which effective decisions and actions can occur.
