The Art of Delegating Effectively
Delegation can be a difficult skill to master for many people. This is because it can be very difficult to let go of the urge to be involved in every aspect of operation. For some, they feel as if the company will crumble if they have to entrust important work to anyone but themselves. In this Delegation Training session we will be able to explore every angle of delegating including when to delegate and to whom to delegate work to. We will be able to go in depth with the delegation process in order to be able to get a look at some of the issues and pitfalls that exist and the ways in which we can get around them. This session is specifically designed to teach teams and groups how they can benefit from the process of delegation.
Delegation can assist you in your role. There is a difference between delegation and offloading. We clearly identify how the skill of delegation can help individuals to become more effective and increase performance or results.
There are several ways to delegate. Some require minimal supervision, others require a level of management. Learn how you can choose the best option depending on your team member and the task at hand.
There is an eight step process that we discuss with participants. This helps each individual become more effective overall in their delegation skills.
Learning how to provide better instruction or communication will enhance your ability to increase your delegation results also. Our trainer provides additional advice in this area to help make sure the communication is used effectively.
Learn how delegation is not just about allocating tasks to individuals. There is also a level of skill in being able to use effective questioning techniques and listening also to become a better delegator.
There are at times pitfalls and issues that may arise from delegation. This session is an interactive discussion with participants to identify some of the common issues and also solutions to help.
