Effective delegation

Effective delegation training

Effective delegation is an essential skill to learn if you want to be an effective manager.

After all, the best managers don’t strive to be super-heroes.

Instead, they are exceptional at picking good people to do what they need to have done, and then letting them get on with it.

However effective delegation can be difficult.

It means identifying the right tasks to delegate, overcoming barriers to delegation and taking the time to delegate properly so that everyone knows what they’re expected to do and by when.

When it’s done right the benefits are numerous and improve the working lives of everyone involved from the managers to the staff and it has wide ranging benefits to the organisation as a whole.


Effective delegation: what is covered?

This course will start with the essentials – defining exactly what we mean by delegation and why it’s so important and so effective when done right.

It then goes into details about, the elements of delegation, overcoming the barriers to delegation, how you can choose which tasks to delegate and who to the process of delegation and much more.

The course is just one of a range of business skills courses that we provide that you may find useful.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
