Delegation is more than assigning work to someone else. Often, it is about entrusting responsibility and accountability. By delegating tasks a manager is handing a little bit of authority over to his or her subordinate, while at the same time keeping responsibility for completion of the task. Delegating is an opportune way to challenge a subordinate employee or prime them for more expansive duties.
However, deciding what and when to delegate can be a delicate matter. A Time Management Practitioner Consensus Survey found that close to half of the 332 companies surveyed were concerned about their employees’ delegation skills. At the same time, only 28 percent of those companies offered any training on the topic.
In this class, you will discover how to decide what to delegate, match people with projects, clearly articulate desired outcomes, identify boundaries, and anticipate problems. As a result, you will improve quality of work by allowing the employees who have direct knowledge to complete tasks, create personal accountability, motivate employees, have more flexibility in assignments, and increase productivity. This 3-hour instructor-led online seminar offers workplace tips, self-assessment exercises, real-life scenarios, practice activities, and more.
