Want It Done Right™

Few of us have ever met a leader who didn’t want to maximize efficiency and productivity in his or her organization. Likewise, we would be hard put to name a true leader who didn’t work to help the members of his or her staff reach their individual professional potential. On top of this, thoughtful leaders care about the impact the job has on the personal lives of his or her employees. But what a difficult balancing act all this presents.

Every leader—regardless if he or she manages one person or a hundred—can benefit from learning how to better strike this balance and achieve these goals.

With this presentation, attendees will learn the effective delegation skills that help ensure professional success while safeguarding rewarding personal lives for themselves and those they manage.

Effective delegation:

• enhances job performance
• relieves job burnout
• reduces errors
• improves relationships among coworkers
• fosters competency
• provides a vehicle for mentoring and coaching
• eases workloads
• builds teamwork
• alleviates stress

heightens efficiency, productivity and profitability

An added benefit to learning the skills of effective delegation is the ability to modify for the better how one receives delegated projects from his or her own boss—important to every employee at every level.

About the Book:

“The most common management style is seagull management. A manager gives you a task, disappears, and then only returns when you make a mistake—they fly in, make a lot of noise, dump on you, and then fly out. If you read Donna Genett’s book on delegating, these ineffective flights will not be necessary.”
— Ken Blanchard, coauthor, The One Minute Manager
