Empowerment Questions

  • Do we agree that empowerment is a key ingredient in our continued success? If so, why? If not, why not?
  • Does our performance review process support or hinder participation and commitment of all staff?
  • Do we compensate and promote those who embody the values we espouse?
  • Do our communication channels promote or inhibit free exchange of information and ideas between individuals and departments?
  • What informal messages do people receive about our culture? What impact does this have on productivity and morale?
  • What do we suppose employees say about our organization when we aren’t in the room?
  • Once people are trained and have proven their competency, do we have the courage to trust them?
  • What happens when someone takes an educated risk and fails?
