“Rozana Huq has made an important contribution to the subject of employee empowerment, highlighting both the positive and negative aspects of employee empowerment and providing rich examples of people and situations. This book will be of value not only to academics, but also to practitioners of both small and large enterprises who may wish to implement or improve employee empowerment.”

Professor Adrian Wilkinson
Director, Centre for Work, Organisation and Wellbeing
Griffith University,

“I was impressed with Dr Huq’s book and plan to recommend it to my current class. I will also add it to my readings for next year. Dr Huq’s book is the first I have seen that focuses on the reasons employee-based safety programs have so much difficulty being adopted…I have been asked by the school to develop a Leadership Practicum, which will be required by all students in order to graduate. I plan to include Dr. Huq’s book as required reading for the Practicum.”

Dr James E Leemann, PHD
Clinical Assistant Professor
Tullane University,

Book Title: The Psychology of Employee Empowerment. Concepts, Critical Themes and a Framework for Implementation.

“Understanding, and effectively managing, the relationship between Empowerment and Leadership is one of the central issues of our time. Dr Huq’s research and analysis not only makes an important scholarly contribution to the theory of the subject but, in her well-presented and readable book, she makes invaluable suggestions on the critical area of the practice of employee empowerment. All individuals with leadership roles urgently need to rethink their ideas, roles and behaviours within Dr Huq’s insightful ‘Framework for Implementing Employee Empowerment Model’.”

Professor Bruce Lloyd
London South Bank University,
London, UK.

“To achieve effective management through empowerment, Huq argues convincingly in her ‘Framework for Implementing Employee Empowerment’ for a synergy of the managerial goals of effectiveness, efficiency and innovation with social work insights into power, personal relationship and psychological well-being. She challengingly highlights a paradox that if a sustainable, productive future is to be found, would-be powerful leaders need to learn the lessons of how to create enabling and empowering environments from a profession who works with those pushed to the social margins”.

Professor John Pinkerton
School of Sociology, Social Policy and Social Work
Queens University, Belfast, UK.

Learn from the ‘LEADERSHIP LEARNING’ model, and inspire your teams


As an Organisational Behaviourist and Business Psychologist, Dr Rozana Huq has designed and created a ‘LEADERSHIP LEARNING’ model for leaders. As a leader this is going to enable you to learn the key skills that are vital to meet the post-pandemic challenges of leadership, team building, remote and hybrid work, including employee well-being and talent retention.

A step by step learning process, this 'LEADERSHIP LEARNING’ model is based on surveys, interviews, and personal experience, and is an exceptional tool for leaders to build trust and maintain good relationships with employees and customers.

The strength of the ‘LEADERSHIP LEARNING’ model is that you can learn from the case studies from Dr Huq’s direct research interviews, asking people what kind of leadership qualities they prefer to see in a leader. The answers are incorporated in her ‘LEADERSHIP LEARNING' model, which can be accessed through RHM Leadership Masterclass™.

It is always useful to ask people, rather than rely on theory-based leadership styles all the time.
