Building A Culture Of Empowerment For High Impact

Embrace a culture of employee empowerment in your workplace.

Employees who feel they are trusted and respected by leadership are more passionate about their work and are empowered to make a greater impact towards the organization’s mission.

“Ultimately, the real measure of empowering our people is impact. We didn’t invent a new and elaborate system of managing people. In fact, it’s quite the opposite – we stripped away policies and procedures to enable our team members to innovate, hold each other up, and solve problems. And when we’re doing that, the results come,” said Jamie Bearse, President & CEO of ZERO: The End of Prostate Cancer.

Employ this culture in your workplace with ZERO’s five guidelines:

  1. Don’t hire for knowledge; hire for passion.
  2. Articulate your mission and most important goals broadly across the organization.
  3. Build trust.
  4. Rip up the rule book.
  5. Embrace technology.
