Empowerment? What a strange (common) interpretation

Diapositiva1Think 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.
