Delegation Skills

Delegation is often regarded as pushing work onto others to do the job rather than getting on and doing it yourself.   However, when work is delegated properly it has really positive impacts and is one of the most important management skills.  Initially it frees you up to get on with the work that really requires your full attention and secondly it expands your team members’ knowledge and skill set.

To delegate effectively and ensure that you are getting the right results you need to remember some key pointers so that your team don’t feel that you are dumping additional work on them.  This workshop looks at the areas you need to be aware of and provides you with some practical solutions.
