"When I delegate projects to my team, I don't always get the results I want. Isn't it easier to just do it myself?"
Sometimes it does seem easier to do it yourself. Delegating responsibilities and projects can take time and without clear communication, can lead to misunderstandings and negative results. But delegating does more than just balance the workload - it can help strengthen the bonds of your team. Delegating demonstrates trust and encourages development. It can make a team member feel that his or her job is important and essential to the success of the business unit. However, in order to achieve this result, delegating must be done effectively. Successful delegation requires skill.
Delegating provides the tools necessary to develop messages that communicate the "what" and the "why" of every delegated task. Focusing on ensuring that the individual understands what is required helps facilitate a successful result - the work is done correctly, and the individual gains the benefits of a new experience and increased confidence and responsibility.
Delivery Options: Classroom, Online, and Blended
Delegating helps managers master the skills needed to effectively assign work to others.

Managers leave with implementation tools, troubleshooting guides and additional resources to help them apply the skills they have learned on the job.
