The art of delegation

Delegating tasks and projects to others is a vital part of a successful manager’s approach. This workshop helps participants to understand that they don’t necessarily need to work harder, but delegate harder! They'll explore the process of delegation, from recognising the barriers they’re facing, to deciding what their next delegation will be.

Impact

On your business

  • Improved resourcing – organisations looking to fully utilise stretched people will benefit from helping managers to maximise the resourcing within their own teams. 
  • Succession planning – individuals in teams that have managers who delegate well, can learn new skills and demonstrate potential for stepping up into roles with more responsibility. 
  • Limiting single points of failure – a culture of good delegation within a team creates more knowledge and skills across roles.  This enables colleagues to support each other when resources are low removing the danger of individuals becoming bottlenecks by being the only person who can do certain tasks. 

As a result of this workshop participants will

  • Explore how to allocate work in a way to make best use of the teams’ resources.
  • Discover the most common barriers to delegation and how to overcome them, giving themselves ‘permission’ to delegate and focus their energy on the priorities that will make the biggest difference to business outcomes.
  • Learn how to set clear expectations whilst delegating, so that the delegation is completed successfully and benefits both themselves and their team member or colleague.
  • Find out how to balance the support given to others whilst delegating, improving both outcomes from the delegation and relationships between themselves and their team members.
  • Create a plan with practical steps they can take during their next delegation to help themselves and their team member or colleague to thrive.
