Essential Skills: Delegation Fundamentals
Delegation can be a frightening prospect because regardless of whether or not you delegate tasks, the final results, outcomes or outputs are YOUR responsibility. So, how can leaders be certain that those to whom they delegate will give the same care and commitment to a project that they would give themselves? This is achieved through a three-step process. First, leaders must develop their teams' skills to the point where they can be successful. Second, leaders must understand how to delegate effectively, aligning skills and time resources appropriately. Finally, leaders must provide continued involvement and assessment of project success through measurement of baselines, milestones and outputs.
This course will help leaders define this three-step process, and will provide tools and templates to help you develop metrics, measure progress and encourage continual process improvement. This course will take approximately 2 hours to complete.
