Three Ways to Empower Your Employees

Successful leaders empower their people to make decisions, share information, and take risks. Here are three ways to get out of your people’s way and let them take ownership:

  • Give responsibility and autonomy. Let those who demonstrate the capacity to handle responsibility take on new levels of accountability and have autonomy over their tasks and resources.
  • Focus on growth. Create an environment where people have the opportunity to expand their skills and are rewarded for doing so.
  • Don’t second-guess. Unless it is absolutely necessary, don’t doubt the decisions of others. This undermines their confidence and encourages them to hold back when they have ideas.
