Throughout this course I will have handouts for you to use as you hone your skills at delegation. These handouts have been provided in the Exercise Files tab on the Course Details page for all lynda.com subscribers, or if you're watching this course on a DVD-ROM, the exercise files are included there. I recommend that you download these materials and print them out in advance so that they're ready for you to use, that way you can access them easily when I reference them during the course.
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.
