Recommendation

The 3 Keys to Empowerment revisits the three keys discussed in another Blanchard book, Empowerment Takes More Than a Minute. These three keys are: share information with everyone, create autonomy through boundaries and let teams become the hierarchy. They should be applied to each of the three stages of moving toward empowerment. Many of the actions suggested for the initial stage: “Starting and Orienting the Journey,” are repeated in the discussions of the other stages, “Change and Discouragement” and “Adopting and Refining Empowerment.” The authors say some areas need repeated focus so readers can implement change. Unfortunately, this is repetitive. The book’s most useful feature is the Empowerment Action Plan, a clear, easy to follow list of specific actions leaders can take at each stage of the journey to empowerment. getAbstract advises CEOs and senior executives to pick up this book.

In this summary, you will learn

  • What the three keys to empowerment are
  • Which five questions will help you decide if a performance goal is worth pursuing
  • How to handle mistakes and discouragement.
