The Empowerment Shift

04 venting 1


Unleash the inner potential of your team.

Make the most of your teams by learning to trust in their talents. The Empowerment Shift will help change the way your leaders think and act. Embracing an empowerment mindset gives your teams the autonomy to be more creative, innovative and self-sufficient—amplifying their voices and helping you maximize your most valuable asset: your people.

Put your people first.

Management and empowerment are not created equal. Traditional management fosters a culture where employees do what they’re told. This opens you up to missed opportunities and innovation stagnation. Empowerment shifts responsibility to the brainpower of your team, giving them the autonomy to make decisions and have a voice. The Empowerment Shift gets you thinking more like a coach than like a boss so you can empower your people to perform to their fullest.

You’re surrounded by immense talent, you just need to learn how to unleash it—by learning to invest time in your team, ask the

In a short time period, DX Learning is able to create a safe learning environment where participants are free to let their guard down and open up their minds to different and more effective ways of coaching. I have read books, attended seminars and received feedback on how to coach properly, but the Empowerment Shift quickly showed me that I had a lot more to learn.
As we were put to the test in coaching simulations, we could see the focus necessary to make real change in our own behaviors. The idea of coaching
by asking more questions and telling less allows our teams to become more self-serving and not as reliant on leadership to tell them what to do.
