Delegation Done Right – Tuesday, August 16, 2-3:30 PM

Have you ever assigned a task to someone only to have a bigger problem to solve after things went awry?

In Delegation Done Right you’ll learn an 8-step process for effective delegation that positions you and your team members for success. From choosing the right person for the right job to timely follow-up, we will explore how to get high-quality work done while boosting your team members’ skills and confidence. You’ll strengthen this important leadership skill that will ultimately increase your own efficiency and foster engagement on your team. To attend this session, Register here.
