If you’ve hired someone for a particular job, you must have believed they were capable of doing that job. So why not get out of the way and let them do it? You hired them because you believed they were going to do the job, and you need to maintain that belief and treat them as such. The day that you believe that they can't do the job, is the day that you need to start doing something different, possibly even saying this is not the right place for them.
Empowerment has been defined as the process of enabling employees to reach their own potential in ways that help the team or organization. This definition focuses less on control and power and more on the effective use of autonomy and delegation. This allows employees both controls over and responsibility for the work they have been assigned.
