Video and Workbook Content:
Set within our Leadership and Management range, these videos and accompanying workbook focus on the topic of Delegating Effectively.
Delegation is one of the most important management skills. Delegation is much more than telling others what to do. It is about using leadership skills that empower others to take responsibility and make decisions. It develops their skills and knowledge and makes full use of their potential.
Good delegation saves you time, helps to develop your team, motivates and, in some circumstances, prepares a successor.
This training pack comes with two videos, which focus on ‘Delegating Decisions’ and ‘How to Delegate’. You can view both of these videos in full below…
How to Delegate
In this 20 page workbook, you’ll look at whether you should delegate a task or not, a simple model for delegating, what not to do and some of the potential pitfalls when delegating.
