Managers', and especially business owners' time is much better spent on more top-level tasks. However, delegation isn't about dumping tasks on others. It's a fine art, and when done properly, your team and business will flourish. Delegating takes careful planning and training for a successful handoff, which in turn takes some time and work, but the payoffs are great for everyone involved.
In this webinar we'll talk about why delegating in the workplace is vitally important, we'll take a look at the reasons managers fail to delegate and why, even when they do, the results aren't what they expected, and finally, discuss guidelines for successful delegation.
Why you should Attend
If you're part of an organization guilty of FTD - failure to delegate or FTDE- failure to delegate effectively, you run the risk of falling short of your organizational, and more importantly, revenue goals. That's huge, but if we take a deeper look at the effect on employees in organizations where managers fail to delegate effectively, if at all, we see a workforce that doesn't feel trusted or empowered; lacks a big picture view; and feels frustrated by lack of challenge and opportunity to use their talents. Bottom line: they're not engaged and to put it in the simplest possible terms, an unengaged workforce is NOT going to help make your organization grow.
