Course Description:
Do you feel overwhelmed by your workload?  Is your inbox overflowing with assignments?  Do your employees seem bored and disengaged?  If you answered yes to these questions, then it may be time for you to enhance your ability to delegate.  Delegation can be a powerful tool.  Executed correctly, it can help you leverage employees' strengths, build better relationships, and free up time for the higher level work you were hired to perform.
 
In this program, you will learn how to:

  • Select the right tasks to be delegated;
  • Match work with the right people;
  • Communicate expectations clearly;
  • Provide feedback and monitor progress; and
  • Acknowledge results.
Your future success will depend on your ability to let go and get work accomplished through others.  Take the self-assessment and join us for Let Go and Stay Close: Skills and Techniques for Successful Delegation to begin harnessing the power of effective delegation.
