Delegating tasks and projects is a signature supervisory skill - the link between supervisor, the employee, and their shared success. Poor delegation hurts productivity by frustrating employees, in effect setting them up for failure. Thoughtful delegation focuses their capabilities and builds confidence, as well as respect for their supervisors. Supervisors who delegate efficiently gain time for other key aspects of their role, such as planning, removing performance barriers, and making process improvements. In this half-day workshop, participants learn how to prepare for delegating a task or project, conduct the conversation, and follow up to ensure that the employee succeeds.
- Assess your delegation challenges and skills.
- Evaluate what work must be done by you versus what can or should be delegated.
- Plan tasks to delegate and align the tasks with the appropriate staff.
- Identify follow-up actions to ensure delegation success.
