Competent delegation skills can dramatically improve your ability to develop other members of the team. Participants learn how to develop their people through delegation and the difference between a manager and a coach. A nationally recognized Situational Leadership® model can be used to help managers see how to balance the right amount of direction and the right amount of support. Participants also look at how they interact, and how they can be more effective as team leaders.
Participants will learn how to:
- Gain Power By Letting Go Of Control: Learn specific steps to effective delegation and what you can have others do more effectively. This frees you up for more strategic planning.
- Develop A Proactive Environment: Examine ways to create a more proactive environment, looking at both your “Circle of Influence” and your “Circle of Control.”
- Decide What To Delegate: Some tasks are better delegated than others. Explore which are best to delegate by first determining what your goal is in delegating. Then use a task analysis to decide who to delegate to and how to make sure they are successful.
- Recognize Different Development Levels: People need different things at different times. Using the Situational Leadership®, recognize where they are in their development level for any given task.
- Adapt Your Style To Each Situation: Learn how to give your people what they need at the time. Practice deciding when to be more task-focused and when to be more supportive.
- Use Effective Delegation And Coaching Skills: Use proven methods to help your staff become more proactive and more self-sufficient. Explore specific steps that make delegation more effective.
- Delegate to Develop Stronger Leaders: Through their role as a manager or team leader, learn to utilize individual strengths to develop tomorrow’s leaders by giving people tasks that help prepare them for future growth.
