Effective Delegation

Effective delegation is an essential manager’s skill in order to ensure critical tasks get done on time and in the most efficient way possible. This involves picking the very best person for the job and letting them get on with it, unencumbered.

This course will teach you what delegation is and why it’s so important. We’ll look at how to identify the right tasks to delegate and who to delegate to; overcoming barriers to delegation, delegating correctly so everyone involved knows what they are expected to do and when, and the process of delegation.
