Delegating for Shared Success

Duration

1 day

Overview:

  • Are you getting the most out of your team?

  • Do you find yourself too often involved in doing tasks rather than managing your part of the business?

  • Are your team members sufficiently proactive, do they take responsibility and deliver?

This programme is designed to give you an understanding of several delegation models and clarity on how to apply tried and tested top tips & techniques to ensure that workloads are shared and successful delegation is achieved.

As line managers, we can only deliver so much in the time we spend at work. To achieve more we need to harness the expertise, competence and energy of others and in doing so, apply the skills of effective delegation.

The challenge is knowing how best to delegate and how to manage the potential sense of losing control when we do. Done well, the skill of delegation actively empowers develops and motivates others; giving them opportunity to rise to the occasion and freeing you up to get on and manage the business. This workshop will give practical guidance that will enable you, through effective delegation, to manage your workload more successfully.

Who will the course benefit?

Team Leaders and Front Line Managers who need to concentrate more strategically ‘on the business issues’ rather than ‘operating within in the business’. Individuals who recognise that they are too “hands on” and need to learn to trust others to deliver will also gain significant benefit from attending.
