Leadership Essentials: Empowering

‘Empowering’ means giving your team members the authority or power to do something, to take more control, and to become stronger and more independent. Keeping employees informed of changes within the organisation and providing training and development opportunities can help give a sense of empowerment, as can providing interesting tasks and new challenges.

‘Leadership Essentials: Empowering’ provides an overview of why empowerment is essential for leadership capability and includes ‘Top Tips’ on how empowerment can help you become a better leader. 

The Essentials leaflet is supported by three Spotlights that look at empowerment in more detail to help you improve your leadership skills:

  • Delegation
  • Empowerment
  • Engagement
