An empowered workforce has the potential to drive organizational growth and exceed determined expectations and results. In today’s fast-paced business landscape with an increased reliance on knowledgeable workers, effective empowerment has become an organizational imperative. In order to benefit from this, your organization’s leaders need to be fully prepared to handle three things: who decisions are made by, how input is gathered, and the process that allows for timely decisions. Managing the decision-making process up front will determine how employees interact with your leaders and the input they receive. Clarity around process will give employees exactly what they need to take accountability within a framework for the outcomes and consequences of their decision making.
Empowered employees are more likely to optimize the decisions in their control and work to their full potential. Your leaders are the only ones who can truly take control of the level of empowerment employees have, and this is a skill that needs to be learned. In Eagle’s Flight’s one-day course, Leading an Empowered Workforce, your leaders will be equipped with the skills and tools to drive the right level of empowerment by clearly defining roles and creating a plan for proper execution so their direct reports have the freedom to make decisions and give input.
