Are you a business owner, line manager or department leader who is responsible for the motivation and performance in an SME? Would you like to improve your understanding of the business benefits of promoting empowerment, to reduce stress and increase output? If you would, this fascinating session is the perfect way to start.

Empowerment in the workplace offers many benefits. Research regularly demonstrates that ensuring employees feel empowered in the workplace engenders greater trust in leadership, drives accountability and is directly coupled to performance ownership, loyalty, job satisfaction and retention.

The concept of empowerment is based on the idea that providing employees with the resources, autonomy and motivation to largely self-manage along with supporting their wellbeing, will increase resilience and performance and ultimately improve your bottom line.

As a leader, business owner or team manager it is sometimes difficult to overcome potential fear of relinquishing too much control and embrace the concept of empowerment for the broader benefit of the business. This webinar offers insights to help you get started by providing the simple steps you can take to start empowering employees, supporting their well-being and begin reaping the benefits.
