Overview/Description
Like most other skills required to manage employees effectively, delegation is something that improves with practice and experience. But few managers, regardless of their level of experience, can delegate tasks perfectly each time. The root of the problem may be the manager's lack of certain delegation skills. Or perhaps the employee lacks ability or has a poor attitude. In either case, managers need proven techniques for overcoming delegation challenges. This course details methods that managers can use to address their own delegation errors, such as improving communication about tasks and distributing tasks more equally. It also provides techniques managers can use to address skills-based delegation problems with employees, such as providing additional training and time-management coaching. Finally, it covers some effective practices for dealing with employees who lack confidence and motivation when presented with new tasks.
