The Art of Delegation 



One of the most prevalent challenges facing new project managers/leaders is how to effectively delegate tasks to team members. Several factors contribute to a new leader’s inability or unwillingness to delegate work. These include a feeling of guilt over having “someone else do their work”; the feeling that the manager can do a better job; or the managers’ feelings that it would be quicker to do the tasks themselves rather than show someone else how to do it. This course provides a 5-step process for effective delegating, and demonstrates the value that delegating work tasks brings to both the leader and the team member who is being entrusted with completing the tasks.

By the end of this session, attendees should be able to:

  • Understand why leaders are reluctant to delegate tasks.
  • Understand why delegation is important.
  • Understand the benefits of delegation for both the leader as well as team members.
  • Understand when and how to delegate effectively (5 Step Process)
