Product description Review

"Empowerment" is one of those business-management buzzwords that generate either excitement or disinterest. Blanchard, Carlos, and Randolph fall into the former category, but they do seem to sympathize with those whose eyes glaze over. Following up their 1996 management book, Empowerment Takes More Than a Minute, The 3 Keys to Empowerment, explains the concrete steps managers can take to empower their employees fully. It starts with information, which managers should share in massive quantities with employees at the start of the empowerment process. The second step is setting up parameters that everyone understands: what employees can and should do, and what actions and decisions will continue to be made by senior management. The third is to develop teams for eventually replacing the old hierarchical structure.

All of this takes time, and the authors point out that team members go up steep learning curves, starting out highly motivated but lacking competence, and quickly lose motivation when they realize how difficult the transition is going to be. Competence and motivation eventually rise, but managers still need to manage differently at each stage of the employees' development. None of this is particularly intuitive, and none of it happens fast. But the rewards, the authors say, include more tuned-in employees, less turnover, and, ultimately, a wealth of brainpower at the company's disposal. --Lou Schuler

From Booklist

Select any book by Blanchard and his team, and there will be a long queue of pre-sold readers. The latest from those authors picks up on the theme of empowerment started in Empowerment Takes More than a Minute and has a very practical, functional twist. Each chapter, arranged in a question-and-answer format, gives advice and details on realizing all the steps and processes. Scattered among the tips are relevant case histories, skills, and reinforcement from other consultants. One example is a sidebar that mentions the art of effective praising, including the expression of sincere appreciation. And the authors stress that sharing information, at the very beginning, doesn't mean explaining a future vision and mission. Smart psychology at work.
