Today businesses are looking at empowerment as a catalyst for higher levels of employee productivity and engagement. Numerous studies and expert opinions have stressed the positive impact of empowerment on an organization’s quality of work, employee satisfaction, collaboration, productivity, and costs. However, empowerment cannot happen without an active and committed role from management. In this course, we cover the rising importance of empowerment in the workplace and the tools available for management to integrate it into the working environment of an organization.
In addition to the material and supporting research and articles, the course provides participants the opportunity to conduct several self-assessments to understand their capability to apply empowerment in their work environment. Participants will also analyze a number of case studies and understand the challenges and benefits that come with empowerment. In addition, several videos will be shown throughout the course showcasing thought leaders and their insight into the evolving role of management through the practice of empowerment.
This course targets managers and supervisors who are keen on improving productivity and achieving sustained higher results from their employees and teams. The course also serves as a strong foundation for senior managers and leaders who want to know more about empowerment and what to expect as they consider new market demands on performance and results.
