How to Increase Profitability and Empower Your Employees with Effective Delegation

One of the most important challenges facing leaders is learning how to delegate. Do you ever find yourself complaining that you are stressed, worn out, or have too much to do? Do you refrain from delegating because you lack confidence in your employees, or believe that you are the best person for the job because you “like things done right?” Maybe you find it easier to “to do it yourself,” rather than try to explain a particularly difficult assignment.

Delegation is not abdication; you are still ultimately responsible for the work. However, appropriate authority along with clear expectations is key to effective delegation. Keep in mind that the biggest obstacle to delegation is the manager's fear of letting go, or worry that someone else may do their job better than they can. What are the real reasons you are not delegating?

If you want to sharpen your delegation skills, relieve yourself of work that you don't need to be doing, or would like to master the art of delegation as a reward and motivational tool, this webinar is for you. Highlights of this fast-pace presentation, taught by a senior HR professional, include how to:

  • Identify and deal with obstacles that prevent you from delegating including the misconception that you are merely “dumping” your work on employees.
  • Decide what and what not to delegate.
  • Set attainable and measurable goals, and coach your employees through the delegated tasks as needed.
  • Carefully choose the person or people to whom you want to delegate.
  • Use delegation to challenge, motivate, and grow your employees.
  • Let go and give employees the responsibility and authority to do something that is normally part of your job as the manager.
  • Manage from the sidelines, but still keep your fingers on the pulse of what's going on.
  • Deliver constructive feedback without destroying relationships and overlooking accountability to you, and the delegated work.
