The Art Of Delegation

Delegation is one of the most important management skills. Logical rules and techniques will help you to delegate well (and will help you to help your manager when you are being delegated a task or new responsibility - delegation is a two-way process!). Good delegation saves you time, develops your people, grooms a successor, and motivates. Poor delegation will cause you frustration, demotivates and confuses the other person, and fails to achieve the task or purpose itself. So it's an important management skill and one that you absolutely have to learn.

This 1 day workshop will cover all the essential delegation skills, cemented by a live practice with feedback. As such it is suitable for all managers, supervisors and leaders, whatever the level of experience.
