Delegation – the art of leading

In times of increasing complexity, workload, and specialization, it is becoming more important and necessary to delegate responsibility. But it isn’t always easy for managers to let go of decisions. Sometimes managers lack trust in the abilities and motivation of their coworkers or  feel delegating tasks takes more time than just doing it themselves.
In this workshop you will learn useful strategies for dealing with attempts to re-delegate work back to you and what to do when the results of delegated work are unsatisfactory.

Content and learning outcomes:

Leading questions for the seminar:

  • Which decisions and responsibilities can and should I delegate to coworkers?
  • How can I assess whether my coworkers are ready for the responsibility delegated to them and avoid over or under-challenging them?
  • How do I delegate tasks so that the work results meet my expectations?
  • How do I inquire about delegated tasks without seeming controlling? How can I give good feedback on work results?
  • How do I avoid attempted re-delegation?
  • How do I let go and learn to live with giving up control?
