Institute of Leadership and Management(ILM) – Spotlight on Empowerment- ILM
Female empowerment rarely occurs naturally and almost always requires some sort of institutional backing and concentrated initiative. Only once a culture of women in leading positions is firmly established can gender equality grow naturally and even then it must be nurtured and monitored, because even in the most empowered organisations the tendency to create more controls and go back to the norm of a male led mindsets is strong.
Once leadership has committed to diversity empowerment initiatives, for these initiatives to be effective, there must be buy-in throughout the organisation, buy-in that will come from collaboration and shared objectives.
empower|me is all about increasing employee engagement, health and well-being and developing empowered and diverse organisational cultures.
It is the nature of individuals to be risk averse, and it is the nature of organisations to create rules to prevent problems from recurring. However by giving the relevant skills that provides employees and leaders with the confidence, technically and physiologically, to work in an empowered way, business and people will thrive.
The empower|me tool box of workshops, coaching and mentoring provide the required skills that are key to for an empowered workforce to operate.
