Motivation and Delegation


No schedule at the moment

If you have three or more candidates or you would like to run this course as an in-house programme, please contact us.


Delegation is not ‘dumping’ or merely allocating tasks. It is a skill that comparatively few managers/supervisors/team leaders process to a high level. Done well, delegation makes a significant difference to the motivation of the individual and productivity of the team. Good delegation also frees management time to allow pursuit of priority goals. This programme addresses the skills of motivation and delegation. Delegates will learn how to get the best out of people and what approaches will enable participants to increase effort and work to the highest standards; and develop staff into high performing leaders, guiding them to achieve their goals and targets.
