Delegation is an essential part of management. In fact anyone can delegate. Yet being able to “let go” and delegate tasks to others is often difficult. The temptation is just to do it yourself – after all you are likely to do a much better and quicker job and the reality is it is going to take more time than it’s worth to explain it all to someone else.
The secret of effective delegation is delegating properly and this workshop shows you how.
In 90 minutes participants will learn how to delegate effectively by:
- completing a self-evaluation How Well Do You Delegate?
- understanding the true purpose of delegation
- knowing the difference between work allocation and delegation
- becoming familiar with the 5 steps for effective delegation.
In this workshop participants complete a self-evaluation How Well Do I Delegate?
Participants take part in a group activity to identify the true purpose of delegation and the workshop highlights the occasions when delegation is not suitable.
The difference between work allocation and delegation is defined and participants are introduced to good practice in each of the 5 steps for effective delegation.
“Delegation doesn’t mean passing off work you don’t enjoy; delegation is about letting your employees stretch their skills and judgement.”
