What empowerment label would you pin to her? We, too, are concerned about how we can create a successful and creative cooperation and regularly question our everyday workflows. How much room for manoeuvre do employees have? What is our error culture? Does the team have enough resources to act on their own? Because only with honesty and sufficient self-reflection can the way to an empowered coexistence succeed!
Lack of innovation and pioneering spirit – these topics are currently lamented by some CEOs and MANAGING directors. Especially in times of digitalization and economic upheaval according to COVID-19, the change from “instruction and execution” by means of cumbersome top-down processes to “creativity and initiative” on the part of the employees is indispensable for the future success of agile companies. Continuous empowerment creates the necessary framework for flexible and innovative action by transferring responsibility, setting incentives in a targeted manner and providing necessary resources. Consistently lived empowerment leads to more productivity, creativity and commitment of the employees – a win-win situation for employers and employees!
