Delegating for Development
Delegation is about entrusting responsibility and accountability to others. By delegating tasks, a leader is releasing some decision-making and authority to his or her subordinate, while at the same time keeping responsibility for the completion of the task. Those who implement effective delegation will improve quality of work, create personal accountability, and motivate their employees. This leads to more flexibility in assignments and increased productivity. Participants of this course will understand the need for delegation and learn how to delegate effectively.
