Delegating

"When I delegate projects to my team, I don't always get the results I want. "Isn't it easier to just do it myself?"

Sometimes it does seem easier to do it yourself. Delegating responsibilities and projects can take time and without clear communication, can lead to misunderstandings and negative results. But delegating does more than just balance the workload – it can help strengthen the bonds of your team. Delegating demonstrates trust and encourages development. It can make a team member feel that his or her job is important and essential to the success of the business unit. However, in order to achieve this result, delegating must be done effectively. Successful delegation requires skill.

Impact

Managers and team leaders will be able to:

Understand the role of delegation in time management, resource utilization, job satisfaction and overall team productivity.

Use a delegation process that ensures team member participation, involvement, and success so that what needs to be done gets done – properly and on time.

Establish a team member’s responsibility and authority for a delegated task – creating a framework for accountability and personal growth.

For over 20 years, Lifetime Learning has used the Leadership Essentials program to equip managers with the tools they need to succeed. Our experience has proven that management skill level, like the ability to successfully delegate work, has a direct impact on business results. We’ve seen how important it is to take the time to develop team members in order to strengthen their commitment to the success of the organization. That commitment can begin with the increased accountability and responsibility that comes with a properly delegated task.

Delegating provides the tools necessary to develop messages that communicate the "what" and the "why" of every delegated task. Focusing on ensuring that the individual understands what is required helps facilitate a successful result – the work is done correctly, and the individual gains the benefits of a new experience and increased confidence and responsibility

Program Description

Delegating helps managers master the skills needed to effectively assign work to others. By clearly communicating expectations and encouraging participation and involvement, managers can use delegating to develop team members' skills and abilities. Throughout the workshop, managers will review video presentations and case studies, participate in group discussions, practice new skills, and receive immediate feedback. Managers leave with implementation tools, troubleshooting guides and additional resources to help them apply the skills they have learned on the job. The 4-hour workshop is designed for 6–18 participants and includes the following:
