  Employee Empowerment versus Employee Self-Leadership
Jaap de Jonge, Editor, Netherlands
  Thanks Tonnis for bringing these 2 interesting perspectives into the employee empowerment forum. One might start from the view point of the leader (style) and want to motivate/cause employees to take (more) own initiative. Or you can start from the employees, wait until some of them decide to play an active role and initiate their own empowerment, and then support that as a leader or manager.
In my view, the second form is easy for a manager/leader. If you have employees like that, you would be unwise to not let and support them to assume more freedom and autonomy.
The first form is more challenging, especially if there are no employees present that clearly have the capacity to take up a more active and demanding role. It requires a long term vision, active coaching and some endurance of the leader to still aim for employee empowerment in such circumstances.
