Effective delegation is one of the most valuable skills a supervisor can master. It reduces your workload and more importantly develops employee skills. Delegating prepares employees who work for you to be able to handle more difficult responsibilities and simultaneously allows you to work on other important activities and/or advance to other career opportunities within your library or organization.

Delegation, for many reasons, is often one of the hardest skills for a manager to master. However, this skill can be learned and applied. This informative session will explore many of the facets of delegation, including when to delegate and how to delegate. We will also go through the delegation process step by step and learn about techniques to overcome possible problems.

You will learn…

  • How delegation, when done correctly, makes everyone more successful
  • Different ways of delegating tasks
  • The difference between delegation and accountability
  • How to give better instructions for better delegation results
  • To recognize common delegation pitfalls and how to avoid them
  • How to monitor delegation results
  • How to give more effective feedback
  • To differentiate between and apply various levels of delegation and what works best in a given situation
