Women in Leadership: Delegation and Support

Course Description 
A major barrier to leadership development is an inability to recruit sufficient support in the process. Managers can spend too much time “in the weeds” doing everything themselves in all areas of life, which prevents them from making more strategic contributions. They also tend to disable colleagues and the people who work for them by shouldering the responsibility and the experience.

Skillsets Covered:
  • Delegation of decisions
  • Creating team effectiveness
  • Strategic work prioritization

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, you should be able to:
  • Define why delegation is important to increasing your leadership impact
  • Identify which activities and decisions you should delegate
  • Strategize how work is delegated through prioritizing tasks
