Effective Delegation

The ability to let go of tasks and delegate them to team members can be one of the most difficult of your managerial responsibilities. While it is tempting to just do it yourself as you may feel that you will do a better and quicker job, saving the time it would take to explain the task - this can lead to disaster.

Choosing not to delegate will gradually overwhelm you and tasks will become half-finished or poorly executed and your team will lose motivation without the engagement of taking on more responsibility.

Get the confidence to let go of tasks with this one-day course which will deliver the skills you need to use delegation as a motivational tool that will increase performance.

You will be able to:

  • Improve efficiency and productivity through effective, planned and intelligent delegation.
  • Improve your ability to delegate demanding tasks by accurately assessing the training and development needs of staff and implementing cost effective solutions.
  • Utilise your delegation style to recognise the tasks that can and can’t be delegated in accordance with the strengths and weaknesses of the team.
  • Ensure that new working arrangements improve work quality and output.
  • Ensure you and all your staff remain motivated, contributing skills and developing new ones to complete activities and projects successfully.
  • Assess the risks of delegation accurately and plan for all consequences.
