The Essence of Empowerment

"He who has power over others, cannot empower himself." ~ Tao Te Ching

The real employee empowerment is not about delegation. It is about involvement of inspired employees and unleashing their power.

Treat employees as owners, develop them, inspire and energize them, provide resources and growth opportunities.
