Delegating with Purpose
Delegation is a critical skill for leaders in today's "do more with less" business environment. Fewer resources, changing motivations, virtual employees, and global workforces are just a few of the challenges leaders face as they attempt to meet ever-increasing workplace demands. In this course, leaders learn the skills they need to address these challenges, gain the commitment of team members, develop individual skills and abilities, and enhance the overall capability and capacity of their teams and, ultimately, the organization. Leaders learn to identify the tasks they need to delegate, select the most appropriate individuals, assess capabilities and commitment, and plan the delegation discussion including the level of decision-making authority, amount of support, and methods for measuring and monitoring the delegation. This class is part of the Business Leadership Certificate. The on-campus DDI course is approved by HRCI and SHRM for 3.5 hours.
