Many things can get in the way of a manager delegating, but once you learn to overcome these obstacles and produce work through other people, you will find you can get more done and achieve better outcomes. Learn how to increase the volume of your workload by identifying and delegating tasks that should not be on your task list, to the people who can effectively get it done. This course will cover the six levels of an effective delegation process, and the positive effect it has on your team members’ success and growth.

Who should attend?

Managers, supervisors and team leaders who want to improve their ability to delegate work tasks to achieve maximum team efficiency and development.

Topics covered in this training course:

Delegating parts of your work will empower you to manage an increased workload and further expand the value you can deliver.

The benefits of effective delegation, and what happens when you don’t delegate.

Develop planning and prioritisation competencies to three levels: basic, intermediate and advanced.

To delegate effectively: choose the right tasks to delegate, identify the right people to delegate to, and delegate in the right way.

Managers and organisations can fail to achieve team cohesiveness through effective delegation because they unknowingly fall prey to five potential obstacles or pitfalls.

When a manager delegates a task to an individual or team, it is imperative that the parties clearly understand their level of authority.

Identify and determine how much time your various task are taking.

Make the right choices when people bring you problems, issues, or tasks they want help with.
