In this course, lynda.com Director of Learning and Development Britt Andreatta walks you through her delegation process, which helps you assign the right tasks to the right people and better develop your team and meet company needs.
The course reveals what delegation can do for you and your team and introduces a four-phase model to delegate tasks and manage projects large and small. The phases include evaluating the task, handing the task over, supporting task completion, and closing the task. In between, learn how to pick the right level of autonomy for each task and the best ways to avoid micromanagement.
As you utilize the four phases of delegation, you'll get better at each phase. Over time, you'll experience a shift in your workload that reduces your stress and makes better use of your experience and expertise. This was certainly true for me. As you continue to hone your delegation skills, you may experience some common patterns. I've written a handout that describes typical problems and includes recommended solutions. You'll find this common problems handout in the exercise files for this course. And if you want to learn more about delegation, also review the Recommended Resources handout.
Being good at delegation will not only increase your effectiveness as a manager, but you'll also help your employees achieve success. A sense of achievement is key to any employee's job satisfaction, which will lead to higher retention of your best people. Finally, the organization also benefits from increased productivity from everyone. Clearly, effective delegation creates a win-win situation for all. So go forth, my friend, and delegate.
