Empowerment is based on the idea that employees' competence, satisfaction and motivation all increase when they are given more skills and resources, more authority and opportunity, while also being held accountable for the outcomes of their actions. This activity tackles this important topic in an interactive way.
The Empowerment Game includes two game boards, so you can run it with up to 12 participants.
Players move around the board using a die and they pick up cards that are then discussed among the group. They make a note (on the board with counters) of their decisions.
Usually the group discuss the card together. If, however, someone lands on a square with a cross in then they are empowered to give their own views on the card before it is thrown open up for general group discussion.
True/False cards help identify what empowerment is really about and what it is not.
At Work cards gives a series of scenarios from real life together with a number of possible options. Teams choose which option they think is best.
Would you...? cards put teams in the position of setting company policy. Each card contains details of what a major organisation has done for its employees (eg one company allows staff to bring dogs to work!). Would team members agree that this is a good idea to help staff become more productive and feel empowered?
A great activity to raise awareness and stimulate discussions around empowerment.
The Empowerment Game was truly thought provoking and made me think of empowerment in a whole new light. It raised my awareness of what it actually is and how I can empower my team. It empowered me to empower others!

I used The Empowerment Game last week for a small session with some of our Staff Partnership Forum reps. They found the game to be really thought provoking and it generated some great areas for discussion that closely linked with some of the actions and outcomes from our last employee opinion survey.
