"Course Syllabus Delegation Skills for Leaders"
Course Syllabus Delegation Skills for Leaders One Day Instructor-led Getting promoted to the role of supervisor is a great achievement. Getting work done through others is a special challenge to all new supervisors, and even some established ones, but it is a skill that can be learned and mastered. The ability to thoughtfully delegate tasks involves four major functions--planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling. This course explains each of these areas and more. As a supervisor, you are responsible for the work of others, and taking the time to match tasks with employees' special skills and abilities is the key to your success. The act of delegating work also involves honing your interpersonal skills, being able to judge the readiness of an employee to take on a project, and being able to instill confidence in that employee to get the job done. Finally, if you are having trouble entrusting others to perform specific tasks, this book will help you become more comfortable in sharing responsibility and letting go of the "I-can-do-it-all-myself" mindset.
