6 Guidelines to Increase Empowerment
To adapt to the world we live in, the empowerment of individuals and teams is an important prerequisite for organizations. With purpose in mind and by actively supporting each individual, every employee can help establish empowerment in the organizations. It starts with leaders, who need to recognize that people are most effective when empowered, engaged, and energized. Empowering individuals and teams is a skill that agile leaders need to sharpen to balance emerging needs and tensions within an organization. Empowerment is not a one-side concept. It is continuous and represents leadership behavior that responds to the current situation and/or the need for change.
