Think now about a common definition of empowerment that usually is described as the process that allows individuals to influence, get power and authority. In theory. Think about what your manager’s interpretation of that empowerment is. Maybe his/her view of empower employees is assigning tasks / duties that he/she is not able to do, in this sort of pure transfer. Probably you are in this situation. Only a transfer, many times without providing correct tools to address an issue, it is shortest way to stress your employees and decrease commitment. And if your employee is not a responsible one (goo.gl/CrP8M) the only consequence that you get is stressfull situation. Empower people is “the process that allows individuals to influence, get power and authority thanks to ensure of correct tools” Now, we got it! Fortunately, many organization are mature enough, others not! Depends if you are lucky to have a good manager or not.

My name is Luca. I studied Organization and Human Resources at University of Milan for my Bachelor degree (2006-2009). In December 2009 I started a master track in Cognitive Science and Decision Making at University of Milan,finished in December 2011. In 2010 I was selected to join a Double Degree program between my university and Maastricht University. So, I attended the master track in Work and Organizational Psychology (Sep 2010-Aug 2011). Working as HR Professional About me? I love people and most of the times they love me. It could seem a narcissistic sentence, but in my opinion it is not. I’m ready to do everything for the people who I love. It is also true with respect of my passions and duties; in fact I work hard to achieve my goals; I don’t give up till I have achieved it.Most of the times people are more enthusiastic than me about my achievements.
