Top Ten Personal Empowerment Tips

Top Ten Personal Empowerment Tips by Rae Stonehouse, Okanagan-based Author, Speaker, Speech/Presentations Coach, Power Networker & Toastmaster Extraordinaire.

Personal empowerment is something that many of us take for granted, yet for others it is an elusive and difficult concept to grasp.

One definition of personal empowerment is “deriving the strength to do something through one’s own thoughts and based on the belief that one knows what is best for oneself.”

From a different perspective “a management practice of sharing information, rewards, and power with employees so that they can take initiative and make decisions to solve problems and improve service and performance.”

“Empowerment is based on the idea that giving employees skills, resources, authority, opportunity, motivation, as well holding them responsible and accountable for outcomes of their actions, will contribute to their competence and satisfaction.”
