I was a manager myself, so I know the challenge of getting the best from my team members – using their time well, keeping them motivated, and developing new skills.
And I also know the pressures on your time, now you have more responsibilities.
The solution to both is... Delegation.
It doesn’t matter how good you are at doing stuff: once you become a manager or supervisor, you need to be able to delegate.
And that’s what you’ll learn by the end of this course.
You'll be able to delegate with the confidence that the task is under control.
What you'll get
You’ll get 18 lecture modules and 7 assignments, going deep into the craft of delegation.
so you’ll be able to delegate precisely and with confidence that the work will be done…
And done well.
A lot of your learning will come from exercises.
They are short 'thinking' exercises, that will help you find a lot of the answers for yourself.
I will brief you by video on each exercise.
And then I'll debrief you in a second video lecture. In that, I'll share the best answers I have, for each of the questions I set you.
This course has five sections
In the Introductory section, we’ll talk about
what delegation is
how to avoid reverse delegation, where you end up doing the work your team members are supposed to be doing for you.
A lot of new managers, supervisors, team leaders, and project managers find it hard to delegate.
They give all sorts of reasons why they don’t do it.
So, in section 2, we’ll look at those excuses, and why they are bogus.
Delegation is a powerful organizational tool.
But only when used for the right reasons.
In section 3, we’ll look at:
the positive reasons to delegate,
the reasons you should never use for delegation, and
the tasks that you should keep to yourself, and not delegate at all.
Section 4 is the main part of this course.
You’ll learn the five-step process for delegating effectively, and we’ll tear down each step to understand how it works.
Finally, in section 5, we’ll wrap it all up.
