Delegation: Perfecting the Handoff

Delegation: Perfecting the Handoff


Event Overview

Whether you’re a  manager or a team member, there are several opportunities for you to delegate  work to others on your team. How do you  feel about “letting go” of those tasks? Do you have the need to “do it all yourself” and be the star? Are you afraid to hand off work to someone else for fear they won’t perform exactly the way you would?  Or worse, that they may perform it better than you would?  There’s no doubt that  delegation holds many risks and therefore instills fear in people. But there are many benefits to delegation:  for the delegator, for the delegatee, and  for the organization as a whole.  This event  takes a humorous, but very practical, look at delegation as a critical tool and  distinct set of skills for everyone on a team to learn.
