What does empowerment mean to you? Is it an internal force that gives you the confidence to take on the world on your own terms, or something that you need to be given?

In reality, it's likely a combination of both: you need to feel it, but, in the workplace, you also need the freedom to run with it. You can explore the benefits and challenges with our article, What Is Personal Empowerment?

As a manager, discover how you can empower your people with our article, Building Trust Inside Your Team, or, to boost your own sense of empowerment, you can learn strategies for Building Self-Confidence.

A Final Note

Personal empowerment is essentially about having "permission to proceed." That permission can come from yourself through self-confidence or self-efficacy, or from others through delegation and the freedom to act.

Next week, you can explore how to manage extreme emotional situations with our video on anger management, and our article on returning to work during times of grief.
