Few things in the workplace are as difficult as delegation – or as important. Anyone in a position of supervision, management or leadership must be able to get results through the work of other people. The process must be reliable and effective. It must be handled without excessive duplicated effort, and it must produce a net gain in output and in the value of the mutual relationship.


Delegation is a special combination of teamwork, supervision and project management. When it is done well, it creates remarkable productivity. As a bonus, it provides a very satisfying growth process for everyone.


In this interactive seminar you will learn:     


  • Why delegation is important – even vital
  • How good delegators use teamwork, supervision and project management
  • The moving parts of delegation
  • What goes wrong with delegation
  • How to succeed as a delegator
