Delegating to Empower

Supervisors are responsible for the development of their employees, which includes coaching, training, counseling and delegating. Delegation is used to increase the skills and abilities of employees, and to create greater empowerment. Furthermore, appropriate delegation should result in a mutual benefit for the supervisor and the employee. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce participants to the method and skills associated with effective delegation and recognize the issues that often make delegation difficult.
