Increasing Productivity through Delegation

Course Overview:

The question is, "Is this a good use of your time?"

On the surface Delegation can take a lot of up front effort and you time in having to explain the importance and the process that needs to be followed.  However once you have spent the initial time either imparting your knowledge verbally or putting the process in place, you are then able to leave the tasks to others allowing you to use your time more effectively.

 “Even “Super You” needs help and support. There is no shame in asking for assistance. Push aside the pride and show respect for the talent that others can bring to the table. Remember that there is no such thing as a single-handed success: when you include and acknowledge all those in your corner, you propel yourself, your team, and your supporters to greater heights”
