Empowerment – A Management ‘Must-Have’

You see, most managers come from the ‘shop-floor’ and find it difficult to let go of that role.

When they try to take a step upwards into a full management role, it makes them feel uncomfortable – as if they are not working ‘hard enough’.

It’s a two-fold problem, it leaves all the critical answers in the lap of one person and employees are at a loss, or afraid to make a simple decision in the absence of their superior.

Leadership Development through Staff Empowerment

You might be surprised how many manager feel concerned when they need to leave their business – you see they have fallen short in being able to empower their employees to cope without them.

And that’s a problem…

They need the support of each of the employees in their teams – and it’s up to the manager to make this happen.
