Creating empowerment

Our teams perform at their best when they feel empowered to do so. This workshop will help participants to create empowerment for different situations within their team, so that individuals can enjoy an appropriate level of autonomy and accountability in a safe and supportive environment.

Impact

On your business

  • Increased company performance – employees that feel empowered are more likely to be motivated to work productively and efficiently, thereby improving company outcomes. 
  • Greater communication – team members that feel empowered to be autonomous at work are more able to communicate their ideas and views, reducing chances of miscommunication and ensuring new concepts are delivered clearly and effectively.  
  • Diversity and inclusion – ensuring that the workplace is a safe environment in which to be autonomous ensures that employees feel respected and heard within their role. 

As a result of this workshop participants will

  • Understand that people within teams require different types and levels of autonomy to feel empowered, and it is important to adapt levels of autonomy for everyone to enable them to perform at their best. 
  • Identify the conversations they need to have about autonomy and empowerment with their team and consider where they need to be flexible with the support that they provide to achieve the best outcomes. 
  • Discover the importance of establishing explicit expectations around ways of working to avoid miscommunication and potential demotivation. 
  • Take practical steps to ensure that their team members have the most appropriate levels of autonomy for them, laying the foundations for creating empowerment.

The latest research has shown that creating empowerment at work can contribute to higher levels of motivation, performance, and overall satisfaction. 
One way that managers can create empowerment in their teams is to determine the right level of autonomy – but this isn’t always as

straightforward as it sounds, especially when managers need to balance this with the correct amount of support. This workshop will help participants to create empowerment for different situations within their team, so that individuals can enjoy an appropriate level of autonomy and accountability in a safe and supportive environment.
