Session type:

Session duration:

About this Workshop

We know that people who are empowered are more creative, more productive and more satisfied with their work and so produce better results for their organisations. So why is there so much disempowerment in the workplace?

In this workshop we’ll share our experiences of disempowerment, invent even more ways to disempower our teams and colleagues and discuss how we might identify disempowerment when it’s happening to others.

We’ll then work together to figure out what could be done differently to move from a disempowered organisation to an empowered one.

Participants will take away:
  • insights into what disempowerment looks like
  • options for tackling disempowerment
