Delegation: For Guaranteed Results
M-1006

DESCRIPTION:

Delegating tasks and responsibility is a critical managerial skill. In any organization regardless of size, no single manager or supervisor can, or should expect to, personally accomplish every important task. Some tasks must be delegated -- assigned to others who can complete the job. Effective delegation is the ability to understand organizational goals and how to best utilize each individual's skills and talents to achieve these goals. It can (1) improve the results you achieve through others and (2) dramatically increase your own effectiveness.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Understand the benefits of delegation for both yourself and your organization.
  • Explain the basic methods involved in successful delegation.
  • Learn what to delegate to whom and why.
  • Examine the obstacles to effective delegation in your staff and yourself.
  • Recognize and avoid the "I can do it better myself" and "multi-hat" syndrome.
  • Determine your delegation style by completing several self-assessments.
  • Be able to use two-way communication to improve the level of understanding.
  • Create a delegation plan and practice implementing it through individual and group discussions as well as role-playing.
  • Learn the key steps and methods for control during delegation.
  • Explain how to utilize recognition, rewards, and sanctions.
  • Translate what you have learned into action.

AUDIENCE:

All levels within any organization

PREREQUISITES:

None

EXPECTED RESULTS:

Your ability to effectively delegate can increase motivation, confidence, and professional and personal growth in subordinates, while allowing you to focus on top-level duties. In this training program, you will learn how to use delegation to transmit any project or plan to all levels of staff and to ensure that individuals function at their full potential. Learn what delegation is, and isn't, and understand why, what, and to whom you should delegate. You will also be able to recognize the symptoms of under- or mis-delegation of responsibility. The delegation strategies outlined in this program will help you to create and maintain a more effective and smoother-running work environment.
