Delegation: What Every Manager Should Know - But Most Don’t

Duration: 60 minutes

On the surface, delegation seems like a basic management skill. Explain to employees what the task is, tell them why it matters, show them how to get it done and let them get to work. Check in from time to time to evaluate progress and offer help as needed. It’s that simple, right?


Not really. Delegation is a complex management skill that few people master without guidance. And that’s the sticking point. Most managers are never really taught how to delegate the right way. They were promoted to a leadership role and just told to delegate and get results through other people.

As a result, delegation doesn’t happen as often or as smoothly as it should. Unknowing managers struggle through their days because, “nobody can do this task as well as I can,” or “my people can’t be trusted to handle this,” or “it will be faster if I just do it myself.”

That’s why you – and your entire management team – are invited to this information-packed webinar with management expert Carol Hacker. She’ll explain why delegation isn’t abdication, how to overcome the fears that prevent delegation, and why establishing authority and expectations is critical to success.
