Background on Chat Topic: Empowerment vs. Delegation
So many leaders and managers confuse empowerment and delegation. Empowerment shares power. Delegation retains power and assigns projects, tasks, etc… When leaders delegate and call it empowerment, they end up wondering why employees are not engaged. Engagement needs empowerment and a culture of learning. Join us in People Skills global Twitter chat (Hashtag #PeopleSkills) Sunday, Sept. 10, 2017 10am ET to explore empowerment vs. delegation.
Empowerment vs. Delegation
As we explore this topic in the upcoming People Skills global Twitter chat, here are some questions to get us thinking in advance. Actual questions will post live during the chat on Sunday 10amET.
- How do you define empowerment? What is delegation?
- How do delegation and empowerment differ?
- What do leaders fear the most about empowerment?
- What do you prefer leaders do: Empower you or delegate to you? Why?
- How does empowerment benefit employees, the organization, and its customers?
- What leadership behaviors empower employees?
- When should leaders empower, when not?
- What are the challenges of delegating & how can managers meet those challenges?
