Delegation Skills for Leaders
Duration: 1 Day
$695 USD


Getting work done through others is a special challenge, but it is a skill that can be learned and mastered. The ability to thoughtfully delegate tasks involves four major functions: planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling. Delegation Skills for Leaders discusses each of these areas and more. As a supervisor or manager, you are responsible for the work of others, and taking the time to match tasks with employees' special skills and abilities is the key to your success. The act of delegating work also involves honing your interpersonal skills, being able to judge the readiness of an employee to take on a project, and the ability to instill confidence in that employee to get the job done. Finally, if you are having trouble entrusting others to perform specific tasks, the Delegation Skills for Leaders training course will help you become more comfortable in sharing responsibility and letting go of the "I-can-do-it-all-myself" mindset.
