OL 500 6-1 Discussion: Leadership and Empowering Employees
How can an effective leader empower his/her employees and why, from an overall organizational point of view, is employee empowerment significant? Provide relevant examples (positive or negative) from your own current or past workplace and include in-text citations.
In responding to your classmates’ posts, respectfully agree or disagree with their ideas. In the examples they have provided, how was employee empowerment used to the organization’s benefit? Or how was the lack of employee empowerment detrimental to the organization as a whole? Encourage further elaboration by asking your classmates questions, offering alternative viewpoints, and/or including additional research that you have obtained through Shapiro Library.
Support your initial post and response posts with scholarly sources cited in APA style.
