Workshop Summary:

As organizations and teams become more complex, roles and responsibilities are often less defined and there are numerous areas of potential difficulty, confusion and conflict. As a result, the need for effective delegation is more important than ever.

Despite an understanding and appreciation of the value of the process, many are challenged by a variety of obstacles when attempting to initiate and manage delegating tasks and projects.

At the completion of the workshop, participants will gain the ability to achieve more, empower others, and meet organizational standards and initiatives.
