Effective Delegation

Effective Delegation is a one day training program.

All too often employees are delegated a task and sadly they fail. What’s wrong with them? Quite often, absolutely nothing. In many cases the fault lies with the supervisor who did not delegate the task properly. Effective delegation is a skill which requires patience, solid coaching and communication skills. It requires a clear understanding of what to delegate, when to delegate, and how to delegate in a way that maximizes employee productivity and performance.

By attending this course you will learn how to do this and much more. You will learn why effective delegation is critical for the development of employees.

You will learn how to enhance each employee’s productivity and overall performance by using effective delegation as a productivity and/or performance improvement tool.

This course is highly interactive and uses an effective balance of presentation, large and small group discussion as well as numerous application exercises. It provides a forum for you to enhance your skills and refresh your supervisory practices.

Participants complete a personal action plan as they proceed through the program to determine how they will incorporate what is covered in the training into their daily work routine.  Participants receive a detailed Participant Workbook which includes details of the concepts and principles presented together with exercises and other job aids.
