Delegation refers to the transfer of responsibility for specific tasks from one person to another.
From a management perspective, delegation occurs when a manager assigns specific tasks to their employees. By delegating those tasks to team members, managers free up time to focus on higher-value activities while also keeping employees engaged with greater autonomy.
In this topic we focus on how to delegate tasks the right way using a five step process (and free up your busy schedule to focus on more important activities).

Delegation is not just telling somebody to do something for you; it’s about sharing or transferring responsibility for a task (and its outcome) to a direct report or team member, while retaining the accountability for yourself.
Being able to delegate effectively boosts your efficiency by allowing you to allocate responsibility to somebody who may have better skills, knowledge, or experience; it may also provide you with a different perspective and a new approach.
Delegation also plays a key part in both motivation and development, giving people the opportunity to learn new skills or increase their knowledge at the same time as fulfilling an important task.
Although delegation is a critical leadership tool, it’s often underused because leaders frequently fear letting go or losing control. Don’t let this happen to you! On this workshop, you‘ll learn how to delegate effectively, not only improving your team’s productivity but also growing your ability to develop others and help them take on new and greater responsibilities. You’ll also create more time and space for yourself to work on the higher-order tasks that are vital for your success and the success of your organization.
