The art of empowerment is a wellness practice for your life, the lives of others, and your business.
When you empower others the energy shifts in a positive direction, work and relationships improve. Positive energy has a positive impact on our nervous systems, level of health, and happiness.
As employees we often give our power away, believing that someone else knows more than we do, or that there is nothing that we can do to make things better.
As employers we often only see how hard we are working and the huge investment we have made and that employees have it so much easier.
It takes work to consider the whole picture, to see another person’s experiences, struggles, and disappointments.
Communication is key in creating an empowered, happy, and successful business. Both sides need to be open to change, honest about what they want to achieve, willing to take in what the other has to say – not just listen, but open to adjusting to the other person’s needs. If you share a common goal then you are a team, with different responsibilities but all empowered to move toward the shared goal.
Empowerment is a practice of noticing how we diminish our own power and that of others; a practice of doing better, being kinder, and taking daily action to empower ourselves and others.
Simple words of gratitude and encouragement such as please, thank you, great job, should be a conscious part of all our daily conversations.
Empower yourself by taking note of all you have accomplished. Be aware of your negative thoughts and conversations, make an effort to shift them in a more positive, empowering direction, practice, practice, practice.
Believe you have the power. The power to make your business and the world a healthier place with your thoughts, words, and actions.
