Delegating can be challenging. Struggling to delegate might be based on wanting something to be done “right” (the way we do it), being uncomfortable asking others to do something, letting go of control, and a host of other reasons.  This can lead to running out of time – and energy – to get things done.  It can make leaders feel they are constantly putting out fires and often not being able to measure the real results of your efforts.  When we build on a strong foundation of SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable/Action oriented, Realistic/Relevant/Recorded and Timely), then use our time optimally and delegate intentionally – it puts the leader back in the driver’s seat.


Participants will learn to:

  • Utilize a system of structuring work priorities based on levels of urgency and importance
  • Understand the theory of diminishing returns-more isn’t always better
  • Identify a tool to use to see where your time actually goes
  • Recognize the steps to take to overcome procrastination
  • Develop good ideas into achievable and successful goals
  • Recognize your delegation style and the barriers that keep you from delegating successfully
  • Identify keys to effective delegation
  • Understand what different types of employees need from you when you delegate to give them the best chance for success
