Dimensions and methodologies for empowerment

  1. 1. Presented by: Suchitra Singh DIMENSIONS AND METHODOLOGY FOR EMPOWERMENT
  2. 2. WHAT IS EMPOWERMENT? Empowerment is the process of obtaining basic opportunities for marginalized people, either directly by those people, or through the help of non-marginalized others who share their own access to these opportunities.
  3. 3. It includes actively thwarting attempts to deny those opportunities. Empowerment also includes encouraging, and developing the skills for, self-sufficiency, with a focus on eliminating the future need for charity or welfare in the individuals of the group.
  4. 4. 5 CORE DIMENSIONS OF EMPOWERMENT Employee empowerment is an important strategy for small business owners and managers. Empowering your workers helps them become meaningful participants in the decision-making processes within your company.
  5. 5. 1-Surrender Control  The biggest concept behind empowerment is that you are going to give up some control of decision-making to employees. .  If you enable employees to participate in decision- making, you are giving them a way to take more responsibility, which can motivate them intrinsically instead of extrinsically.
  6. 6. 2- Create Buy-In  Giving people more responsibility and input into decision-making processes creates the opportunity for them to "buy-in" to their work  In the business, ask employees to help you brainstorm how to improve a core activity, such as filling a customer order, with a goal such as increased efficiency or customer satisfaction.
  7. 7. 3-Source New Ideas.  Create ways for employees to suggest ideas on their own initiative, not just in response to your requests for input.  Employees can contribute in staff meetings, they can approach managers directly with new ideas, they can implement small-scale innovations in their own work areas, and they can be actively involved in making your business responsive to changing business conditions.
  8. 8. 4-Get the Employees' Vote Employees should get to vote on decisions that affect everyone in the company This kind of participation in broad-scale decision-making gives employees influence over the financial rewards of their employment and demonstrates how much you value their membership in the company
  9. 9. 5-Create Team Decisions In companies with work teams, there are many ways to empower employees. For example, team members can set their goals and choose how to best accomplish them. This is a powerful concept because new employees must work really hard to prove their worth to their peers to keep their jobs.
  10. 10. METHODODOLOGY FOR EMPOWERMENT Empowerment practice directs social workers to address challenges at all levels, including those of individuals, families, groups, organizations, neighborhoods, communities, and society. An empowering approach reveals the worker's unwavering commitment to social justice. This approach operates on the axiom that we all benefit when we acknowledge every person's rights and responsibilities to contribute to and receive from community participation in a reciprocal relationship. The realization of interpersonal success builds confidence for interactions at the institutional level–feelings that drive empowered people forward to assert their rights, develop their privilege, and fashion just environments.
  11. 11.  Empowering initiatives at the individual level are supported and sustained only by opening pathways to power sources in social, economic, and institutional structures.  To facilitate empowerment, practitioners integrate a continuum of strategies ranging from individual development to relationship improvement to resource acquisition and reallocation through social and institutional change.  The empowerment method focuses on the achievement of goals and change of systems by utilizing available strengths, resilience, and resources.  By focusing on competence rather than deficits in individual or social functioning, the empowerment model supports resourcefulness and the development of skills to remove social barriers for individuals and communities.
  12. 12. COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT AND DEVELOPMENT TEAM (CEDT) CEDT’s Methodology and Tools CEDT uses the following methodologies and tools for working together with communities and addressing the issues related to tenure insecurity: 1.Community mapping and documentation (CMD) Community Mapping and Documentation (CMD) is an important participatory planning tool used by CEDT to engage and empower urban poor communities on land, housing, and infrastructure issues. It involves the creation of comprehensive hand drawn/GIS maps and community profiles by the communities with support from CEDT’s technical team. CEDT builds the capacity of community members and Local Authorities (LAs) to carry out the activities themselves, resulting in the development of community hand drawn maps and community profiles.
  13. 13. 2. Strengthening Communities and increasing social capital The training and capacity building activities facilitated by CEDT directly involves community representatives and members building their capacity for community facilitation, community action planning, commune investment plans (CIP) and land rights, along with helping them to become agents of change in their communities.  3. Community Action Planning (CAP) The community action planning process (CAP) is an indispensable road map that is being used as a tool by CEDT within the communities for implementing community change relating to their housing, development and infrastructure needs.
  14. 14. 4. Participation in Local Governance and Commune planning CEDT is trying to increase the influence of the communities in deciding which types of development projects they seek in their village/commune and sourcing support for their own projects from their own Commune funds. In this way, communities can contribute with greater participation to local governance and commune planning.
  15. 15. SOME OTHER METHODS FOR EMPOWERMENT: There is 7 methods to strengthen communication and performance. 1-Implement Effective Policies and Procedures A Policies and Procedures Manual is a communication tool designed to empower employers, managers and employees with a consistent approach to accomplishing their daily tasks. A properly developed manual focuses everyday business communications between employees and management on what is really important to get the job done. This focus is the first step in empowering employees.
  16. 16. 2.Convey Management Policy and Vision If employees know the vision, then they feel confident to make decisions. Keep in mind, though, policies should not be confused with procedures. Policy - A definite course or method of action to guide and determine present and future decisions. A procedure is a series of steps followed in a definite regular order that ensure the consistent and repetitive approach to action.
  17. 17. 3- Improve Communication and Efficiently Run Operations If a department has specific information that it requires to process a task, then this information is easily captured in a form that accompanies the task. Forms are commonplace in business, acting as a guide for such things as purchase orders, employment applications or asset requisitions.
  18. 18. 4. Reduce Business Process Training Time A policies and procedures manual is a functional guide for training new and existing employees. It prevents difficulties in performing duties due to lack of understanding or inconsistent approaches from personnel changes.
  19. 19. 5. Improve Productivity and Decision Making Policies and procedures speed up employee decision making by having a handy, authoritative source for answering questions.
  20. 20. 6. Strengthen Organization and Quality It will empower employees to make decisions independently without the need or time delays of involving various levels of management.
  21. 21. 7. Meet Objectives with Policies and Procedures Manual The goal of the policies and procedures manual is to identify the ways and means of communicating, as well as getting the service performed or the product manufactured at the least cost in the minimal amount of time.
