Take leadership and vision, add a touch of resiliency, blend with a passion for change, follow specific steps to achieve desired outcomes, and you've got recipes that will successfully move an organization from the status quo to a future vision. In The Empowerment Cookbook, Russell D. Robinson helps you realize this vision by showing how to harness employee capability and energy through empowered teams. Documented as a breakthrough intervention for performance improvement, empowerment is the catalyst that can fuel change in virtually any type of business. The Empowerment Cookbook presents a process model that will prove invaluable to managers, consultants, team members, trainers and executives alike. Searching for a format that would easily engage the reader and serve as a quick reference, author Russell D. Robinson used a cookbook metaphor because it applies the inputs (ingredients), the outputs (finished product) and the "how to" (process). Actual "recipes" in The Empowerment Cookbook show how to successfully create, sustain or refocus an empowerment initiative.
