Can You Empower People Like Google?

Part of Google’s success worldwide has included empowering their employees to take action on their ideas. Steve Myers writes in his cyber-journal, “Many products and product improvements at Google start with one person having an idea, sketching it out, showing a prototype to others, getting feedback, and soliciting support from others.”

Notice that getting permission, or “running it by” your supervisor is absent from the natural flow at Google.

“Any engineer on our team is empowered to try something they feel strongly about,” Todd Jackson, a product manager for Gmail and Google Buzz said.

Act now. You have the power to eliminate fear and uncertainty. Let the reins loose. Take a risk. Build and extend your lead by focusing on the long term. Empower others and reap the reward(s)!
