Employee empowerment is one of the key management concepts of our time, but the empowerment concept has not yet become part of our corporate culture. In order to make it possible for managers to utilize empowerment concepts, the authors have developed a model, based on coaching, modeling and career path development in both an organizational and individual context. In the final section of the paper (Implications for Practicing Managers), the authors emphasize that implementation is not an easy task, as the manager must override traditional, authority‐based mindsets to develop a different paradigm.
