90 Minute delegation skills Training session

Delegation is much more than telling others what to do, it’s a people development tool. It is about using a particular style of leadership that empowers others to take responsibility and improve decision making. It develops team members skills and knowledge and makes full use of their potential.

Delegation is about entrusting others with your authority and whilst you retain overall responsibility if something goes wrong, they are entrusted and encouraged to make decisions. Delegating is a key skill all management and leadership teams need to develop.

  • Effective delegation creates time for managers to complete their tasks, develops and motivates their team members

  • Delegation is a very effective tool when succession planning
  • Delegation is a style of management used for team members in the fourth stage of team development, which we cover in the "Building a High Performing Team” session
