In this age, companies require far more things from their employees compared to the past. Higher expectations of customers, increasing globalization, complex technologies are just a few aspects of the change in working conditions. The traditional order and command chain of the past is much less suitable for the present work and business environment. Instead, employees should learn to be able to take initiative and responsibility. In other words, they need to be “empowered”. Empowering the staff in schools, is an aspect of efforts of “developing the school”, and it is a highly ignored or disregarded process. “Empowering the staff”, which is considered to be one of the essential elements of creating a high performance school environment, is a proactive approach like preventive medicine. This article looks into analyzing the two different approaches of management and clarifying the meaning of empowering the staff.
