CoachingOurselves is pleased to announce a new peer learning topic for your organization, “Dealing with Delegation” by David Creelman.
“One of the basic conundrums of good management is that you must become less involved in the daily activities as you take on increased managerial responsibilities. Inherent to effective management is the skill of delegation. Yet delegation can prove to be a perennial problem for new and experienced managers alike.”
Delegation is the transferring and entrustment of a task to another person. It is not just a short-term solution to a problem but a consistent strategy of communicating effectively and supporting the development of your peers. Skillfully delegating will not only increase your own leadership capacities but those of your team members. This topic asks you to dig into where you may be challenged when delegating.
This topic will:
Introduce you to the three most common reasons for delegation problems;
Present classic steps for effective delegation;
Ask you to reflect on where you can improve.
CoachingOurselves topics help all team members, regardless of level, develop deeper awareness of themselves, their peers, and how their organization gets things done (or how it doesn’t). With CoachingOurselves, participants always benefit from expert content written by leading thinkers which helps shine a lens on a specific aspect of organizational life. Share strengths, go beyond personal challenges, and as a group create coordinated ways forward. We’re sure you will enjoy “Dealing with Delegation” by David Creelman.
