The emphasis on control in modern organisations frequently produces structures that are top heavy. This undermines a sense of ownership by people in the organisation and produces a climate of carelessness over time.
Care and Growth Applied – Authority and Structure:
Care and Growth Leadership requires the leader to incrementally suspend control in the process of empowering people. Over time this has an effect on structure and system in the organisation. This module is concerned with understanding and managing that effect.
By the end of this module you will be able to:
- understand the effect of empowerment on hierarchies: Vertical empowerment.
- understand the effect of empowerment on support functions: horizontal empowerment.
- define an action plan for delegating a decision.
- demonstrate what you have done to empower a subordinate with something they could not previously do.
