Leadership Is a process of influencing and maximising the efforts of others, towards the achievement of a goal or objective. Leaders must communicate with his/her followers, a good leader should listen actively to their employees, ask for advice, share personal stories and work together towards a goal with his or her #Employees. Its sad most leaders don't have a good trait of leadership so it makes it even harder for the followers or employees. Facts, shows that most companies fails because of bad leadership and management.
To empower your employees is to be supportive in their progressive success, also to have faith in your employees and take responsibility.
When employees feel empowered they get motivated and in a better opportunity to learn and control stress at work, it #encourages open communication, clearly define roles which help employees to understand what they are expected to do or what is expected from them. Also, to appreciate their efforts goes a long way, because it will not make them feel valued around their peers at work. If an employee feel unvalued there is a probability he/she can be thesaurus if the need arises.
Leaders should act like a form of "superheroes" and be tolerant to their employees, they should be the last to leave the office especially if work has to be done or if the need arises, and they should take it upon themselves to understand their employees needs, concerns and stop being rigid all the time because change and adaptation is a good trait of a leader.

In summary the empowerment of the employee develop the organisation and contribute a lot to the organisation and if the 4 conditions are met then the employees have/has been empowered, it is when the employee is empowered, they are more innovative, creative, diligent at their work and feel a sense of belonging.
Employees are an organisation's most important asset - they are your competitive advantage. Employee empowerment is a great asset to a business or organisation, and they should be given power to make decisions without consulting their bosses or managers sometimes because they are usually experts in the field they are in. They need that sense of #empowerment in the organisation to express their views and only then will they show more interest and have a positive attitude towards that #organisation or #business.
