THE ART OF DELEGATION FOR LEADERS
Essential delegation lessons that are proven to work
Is this management skill something you struggle with and you don’t really know why? Make this critical skill a comfortable and everyday part of your repertoire. By the end of this course you’ll be using delegation consistently so you (and your team) can be more successful, progressing further and faster with your career.
I’ve worked with hundreds managers and leaders over nearly twenty years as an executive coach and one of the key things that comes up repeatedly as the thing that’s blocking career progression is delegation. Because leaders struggle with delegation they end up in serious overwhelm, both at work and at home. That’s one of the main reasons they arrive at coaching.
HERE IS WHAT I HEAR REPEATEDLY
“I’m overwhelmed. I just can’t handle all the things that are expected of me.”
“I just don’t have the time to do the more strategic work that is expected of me now.”
If this is you, then you’re probably realising that what got you here won’t get you there. You won’t progress further without a change. You need to do something different and finally dealing with delegation is probably a big part of it.
I HEAR IT FROM BOSSES TOO
“They’re not stepping up like we’d want them to. We need them to be thinking and acting more strategically”
Since it can be a rarity in some organisations to see delegation done well, many of my coaching clients have never before seen what good delegation looks like, especially strategic delegation! You may very well be the same but in this course that’s exactly what we cover!
IN THIS COURSE YOU WILL LEARN:
The secrets of being a great delegating leader
Why delegation hasn’t been easy for you so far so you can do something about it
To clarify what good delegation will mean for you
A simple and effective model of delegation you can quickly adopt with your team
How to assess the capacity in your team for them to take on more of your load
How to work in collaboration with your direct reports such that they love how you delegate
How to work with your own values and identity to transform performance in this area
A process for strategic as well as tactical delegation your role can scale
How to overcome perfectionistic tendencies and replace them with something better
Though only 45 minutes of video, expect the actual work you’ll be doing to spread over several weeks as you put the tools and processes outlined into practice. I recommend you don’t try to consume this course all at once but take the time to integrate each lesson before moving on to the next one.
