Delegating for Dynamic Results

Have you ever asked, 'Why don't my direct reports do what they are supposed to do?' Unfortunately, many people answer, 'They just aren't cut out for the job. I'll have to do it myself.' Rather than blaming others, you may need to improve your process of delegating the assignments.

Intended for team leaders, first-line supervisors, and managers who have had experience delegating assignments or responsibilities, you will learn about the process of delegating. By assessing your attitudes and current practices as a delegator, and through experiential activities, you will explore effective delegation techniques and how to motivate and continuously develop staff.

May be applied toward the Advanced Leadership Certificate.

Morning refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.

Meetings Mean Business

The reasons for holding meetings are almost as numerous as the number of hours spent in them. Research shows that the average individual sits through 9,000 hours of meetings in a lifetime — over 365 days — and that organizations spend thousands, sometimes millions, of dollars on meetings. Yet most people groan at the thought of attending another meeting because meetings are often mismanaged. They get off track, are interrupted, take too much time, have unclear agendas, and lack effective leadership.

In this course, you will learn how to plan and conduct meetings that maximize participation and achieve desired outcomes. You will increase your understanding of the differences between task and interpersonal issues in a group while learning about effective meeting practices, increasing your confidence to lead people in meetings that really mean business.
