Definitions

Delegation– a way to accomplish job tasks with each person taking a part of the work and responsibility which best uses and extends her skills.

Empowerment– creation of a work environment which allows each individual to work to her highest capacity. An empowered workplace is a safe climate for people to work together with freedom to take initiative, to create, to solve problems, and to assume the responsibility of completing the task.
