Micro Episode 9 - Exploring Empowerment

In this Micro Epsidoe, we explore Empowerment.

Timestamps and Takeaways

01:31 When we believe that someone has power over us, we begin to act as if that is true, and in that, we are giving our control away.

02:45 If you're waiting for someone else to empower you, you will never reach your true potential.

02:57 Empowerment comes from within us; therefore, we can call it in-powerment  (we can credit @garry Turner for this one, the term he coined during a discussion on Clubhouse last year) to avoid misunderstandings. 

03:44 You are only ever one thought away from either empowering or disempowering ourselves and is it easy to forget that sometimes.

06:35 There are two challenges in companies right now: managers believe they can give or take away Empowerment, and the second is that employees are waiting to be told what to do.

08:52 We have a lot more autonomy than we think, one example being Nelson Mandela, who was incarcerated for many years and never gave his power away.

09:08 It's like self incarceration when we disempower ourselves as we wait for others to tell us what we can or cannot do.
