6 Myths About Empowering Employees

I’m sour on the word empowerment and I’m sour on empowerment programs. To me, saying we need an empowerment program is like saying we need a swimming program. The implication is that swimming isn’t a natural occurring behavior for our people. So, what we are saying when we say we need an empowerment program is that the fundamental way we run our organization is dis-empowering, or is it de-empowering?

The solution isn’t a “program.” The solution is to change the fundamental way your organization is designed and managed so that people can exercise the natural power that comes from being a human.
