HR Matters: Delegating for Employee Development (MSHR080817)

Course Memo

As a leader, you can’t achieve results on your own. Your success depends on your ability to channel the energy and talent of those you lead. And yet, many employees report feeling “underemployed” in their current roles. Leaders who learn to delegate effectively gain a powerful weapon in the battle to increase both employee engagement and results at the same time. In this session, you will identify the benefits of effective delegation, explore common barriers to delegation, discuss criteria for selecting tasks to delegate as well as employees to take on these tasks, and learn a simple tool for clarifying the level of authority being delegated with each task.
