Delegation by Design

As a key practice in the leadership toolkit, effective delegation enables individuals to get outstanding work done through and with others. It is much more than simply asking someone to do something. If done properly, delegation can strengthen a work relationship, mobilize a group effort, develop the ability of others, and build trust — not to mention getting all the work done well. In this session we explore how to empower others responsibly and accomplish work goals through using effective delegation.

Objectives:

  • Examine how leadership requires effective delegation – the appropriate sharing of power
  • Consider how to balance a variety of factors for successful delegation
  • Learn a seven-step process for establishing an effective delegation of work

Target Audience: Leaders, supervisors, managers, and coordinators – anyone who is tasked with accomplishing results through working with others.
