Course Description

Every leader wants that “dream team” of happy, highly capable individuals who can achieve goals. Delegating work enables leaders to build team capacity and achieve results. So why aren’t they delegating more, and more often?

This course sets out to help leaders shift their mindset about what they can delegate and feel more comfortable and confident doing so. Learners dig into their workload to identify tasks they’d never consider delegating. They use methods for matching people to tasks they’re both motivated and capable of doing. And, they practice the delegation conversation they’ll have to ensure success.

Course Outline

  • Delegation: Why you should be doing it more
  • Share work to empower
  • Leveraging your people
