Delegation may be the most vital leadership skill of this era of business. It is also one of the most difficult tasks of leadership. Delegating is a skill that must be put into practice strategically. When successfully done, delegation increases the capacity of a workgroup, more is accomplished. You, the team member, and the work unit, and the organization all benefit.
Delegation is also a tactical competency to complete an ever-increasing list of work responsibilities while increasing the organization’s bench strength and creating a pipeline for succession planning. Rather than a way of offloading routine tasks which they don’t like or don’t think they have the time to do, properly done, delegation is an effective way of empowering and developing people while accomplishing work.Register Now

After spending more years (than I care to admit) in management roles, I was amazed at the amount of new information I learned. The Leadership Program was well worth the time spent away from the office. Instructors were knowledgeable and engaging. Class exercises were fun and collaboration with program participants was a great experience.
