Delegating Authority in the Workplace

COURSE OVERVIEW

Being able to let go and delegate tasks to others can be one of the hardest managerial responsibilities. The temptation is just to do it yourself - after all you're likely to do a much better and quicker job and let's face it it's going to take more time than it's worth to explain to someone else how to tackle the task.This all too common view only leads to disaster - lack of delegation will lead to you slowly drowning in work. Tasks will become half finished or poorly executed and you will end up with a disgruntled and de-motivated team who are crying out to take on more responsibility.

Learning to delegate effectively is one of the most valuable skills you can master. Delegating prepares employees who work for you to be able to handle your responsibilities and simultaneously allows you to advance to other career opportunities within your organization.

By the end of this course you will be able to improve productivity and efficiency through effective, intelligent and planned delegation.
