“Empower” is a word that means “empower” is powerful and force. It’s often used in this way; however, some people say it’s “overused.” It’s also used in a way that isn’t intended, as the notion of “motivation,” the most commonly used misuse about empowerment, is the idea that one person could influence another. Empowerment, as I describe the term, is a dynamic between the inner and outer, which is best facilitated by silence and awareness of the inner guidance. Empowerment isn’t just an additional way to “get” something; It’s a state of mind that helps you live your life to the fullest.
People who are empowered are calm in their thinking, self-assured of their surroundings, vital, compassionate, and well-prepared. People who are empowered do not appear overwhelmed, confused, violent and divisive, or just wishy-washy. Of course, those who are empowered may have moments of frustration or confusion or uncertainty, but their most prominent expression is one of confidence, strength, and respect for others and themselves. Additionally, empowerment is dependent on the situation, which means that you might feel at ease in one circumstance but not in another.
The majority of people, but most certainly not all, enjoy being in the company of people who are really empowered, as the energy that surrounds them is healing and contagious. People who are empowered love to have fun and live moments in a manner that inspires others to discover their own strength. When empowered people are shining the light of their own, other people are able to more easily see their own shining light. The behavior of those who are empowered is often emulated. However, it’s not just an action or behavior. The actions aligned with inner knowledge and power are essential to achieve true empowerment. A clear and enlightened mind is the basis of empowered actions, not the reverse. Because empowered people are fueled by their inner self, They carry their power along with their own power.
In favorable terms, I’d like to clarify what people who are empowered can’t do: people who are empowered do not get their power from anyone else. They don’t harm or take over or infringe on the rights of others or make snide remarks, degrade others or use insulting humor to take over meetings or oppress other people. They don’t share their power with others or allow others to take over the power (which is just an extension of “giving to others power).
To feel empowered, you must let go of old beliefs, stale thoughts, fears that are not being addressed, and anger. To feel empowered, you need to replace negative beliefs with ones that empower you. To feel empowered, you need to be aware of your focus on your thoughts, your thoughts, and the feelings you have. To become empowered, you must consider your own beliefs, desires, and emotions and also others’ thoughts, beliefs, and desires. To feel empowered, begin from where you are now without feeling insecure or believing you have to get “fixed.”
Empowered organizations are made up of people who are empowered, but it’s not a given that the presence of empowered people is automatically an empowered company. Companies who truly empowered have stepped away from the traditional paradigm of unhealthy competition and a belief in scarcity and limitation. A lot of people, including myself, would like to think of an empowered company as one that is in the process of moving into the “new model.”
The empowered organizations of the new paradigm have transformed themselves in such a way that they can demonstrate the characteristics of transparent and authentic communication, cooperation among work teams (usually known as teams), and shared responsibility in every aspect of task and procedure, and the production of top quality services and products driven by the needs of clients and customers.
Employees of empowered organizations tend to speak of the “joy” of working and feel “love” to their colleagues, even though those words might not be said, nor is the use of these words proof of their empowerment.
From There to Here
The majority of people agree with the merits of concepts such as “open communications,” collaboration,” and “customer-driven” objectives. But, the established rules often do not allow for the actual actions needed to allow these concepts to come to fruition. There is still a lack of trust within many organizations, especially those who are confronted with downsizing initiatives that have been or are being implemented with brutal tactics. The belief that an organization has been established for only the purpose of earning money is the reason why many companies are stuck in dysfunctional practices.
It is essential to recognize the place an individual or company is at the moment. Pushing a different paradigm over an existing one won’t do the trick. Change that lasts is made by transforming the entire system. The structure of organizations in the past is vertical and linear, with Top-down bottom-up. Disregarding the chains of command can be a severe offense in many traditional businesses, which reinforces this linear structure.
When companies reduce their size or modify their structure, The vertical and linear movements tend to become circular and horizontal. The old method of looking outward to determine what the people on the upper levels of the company are looking for shifts to looking inward to determine what is serving the best interests with the aid of intuition. Some of the famous names for the new organizations that are in alignment with this horizontal-circular-inward formation are: “team,” “cluster,” “learning organization,” “circles,” and “networks.”
Through my lens of studying energy fields and working on energy principles, I have found a “flattening” of companies as exciting and a step forward. The process of flattening (eliminating the layers of management and other changes) might not be very positive at the time it’s happening; however, the final results are often very positive. In the chaos emerge the new patterns and forms of working and working together to conduct business. The chaos theory that has developed in recent years can help you comprehend this process of discovery and the creation of various systems.
Chaos theory can also help you to comprehend the various paradigms: old, new, and emerging. A new pattern or form, or paradigm is created as the old one no more is effective. For those who think the definition I have given of paradigms to be too simplified, I suggest you go through any of the books listed below.
