How to Increase Your Personal Power * digital free * (Empowerment) 4-page tipsheet
Hank Karp says, "Power is the ability to get all of what you want from the environment, given what is available." And, the more you are able to get what you want from your people, the easier it will be for your organization to achieve its goals and objectives. This tipsheet encourages managers to take charge and increase their impact, while fostering support by empowering their employees (4 pages).
This tipsheet formed the basis for ODT seminars on Empowerment, including our "How to Manage Your Boss" seminars. The program was conducted for dozens of high-tech companies in the 1990's.
ODT began as consulting and training company in the field of Employee Empowerment and "Upward Influence", and soon developed a series of training modules on "How to Receive a Performance Appraisal", "How to Receive a Delegated Assignment", "How to Increase Your Personal Power", "Self-Directed Work Teams", as well as a series of instrumented feedback tools and workshops to help communication up (PRIME Match), downward (PRIME Search), and with peers (PRIME Peer). These tools are currently being digitized and will be available in 2019. See this link where they will be posted when they become available.
