    Time is one of the most valuable resources in your organization, and assigning and planning tasks are one of a manager’s greatest responsibilities. Often, managers are promoted into their roles because they were high performers themselves, and they are not used to relying on others to get their work done. They may end up taking on too much of the work themselves, which can lead to feeling overwhelmed and spending less time on other key tasks such as developing a strategy or motivating their team. Research shows that delegation builds confidence in team members and teaches them to take greater initiative and responsibility, but managers may not know how to delegate effectively. In this interactive program, we’ll discuss the common misperceptions about delegation and use evidence-based best practices for effectively delegating tasks and empowering employees to achieve them.

    Workshop highlights:

    • Evaluate how likely you are to delegate to others and barriers that may be preventing you from trusting your team
    • Learn guidelines for effective delegation, including resisting “reverse-delegation” where managers still end up completing the work themselves
    • Practice delegation techniques and strategies for monitoring a task that the manager is currently dealing with

    Presenter: Lily Cushenbery, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Management, College of Business, Stony Brook University

    A certificate for 2 Professional Development Hours (.2 CEU's) will be emailed after the workshop.
