Self-Assessments Organizational Behavior
The aspect of empowering others is important and key to the success of any business organization. Prior to taking the short survey on empowering others, I may have underestimated the importance and scope of empowering others in a business organization. This may have been because in most of the organizations I have worked for, I have not been in charge of a large group of people, especially past the departmental level. Taking this survey enabled me appreciate the scope of empowering others in a business organization, even if one is not a leader in the business organization. The questions in the short survey were relevant to the topic of empowering others in a business organization. In my opinion, the short survey exhaustively covered the aspect of empowering others in an organization. I learn from the survey that individuals in the work environment work better when empowered.
Empowering others, especially when leaders empower employees in an organization is important, not only for the wellbeing of the business organization, but also for the employee at an individual level. Employees that are psychologically empowered believe that they have the freedom to choose how to initiate and carry out tasks, that they are able to successfully carry out tasks, that their work is personally important, and finally, that their personal behavior at the workplace contributes to important outcomes. In addition, empowerment of employees significantly affects their creativity, results in higher intrinsic motivation and problem solving ability.
