Empowerment is a key aspect of building a strong culture and getting people engaged. In my work with various teams over the years, it is typically noted that an environment that features poor empowerment typically is more hierarchical, less vocal, less democratic, and people in general are less engaged and at its worse, less inclined to voice their thoughts or opinions. The outcome is typically a poor culture, quite often top down driven. How can you create a collaborative, continuous improvement inspired culture under these conditions?
As a lean or change leader, you should be focused on empowerment to develop other leaders and carry on the mission.
