Set within our Leadership and Management range, this video and accompanying workbook focus on the topic of Being a Leader.
Delegation is one of the most important management skills. Delegation is much more than telling others what to do. It is about using leadership skills that empower others to take responsibility and make decisions. It develops their skills and knowledge and makes full use of their potential.
Good delegation saves you time, helps to develop your team, motivates and, in some circumstances, prepares a successor.
One of the most important aspects of your role as a manager is to give feedback that guides and motivates your team members.
In this 28 page workbook, the learner will explore a number of feedback techniques and models, as well as look at some of the issues around feedback such as whether it should be anonymous, and whether recognition is more powerful than praise.
