Course Description

  • Preventing Employee Mismanagement Through Effective Delegation

    The problem with mismanaged employees is that they engage in counterproductive workplace behavior and become “difficult.” As a result you - the manager - is not able to delegate to them. The ability to delegate allows the manager the freedom and time to be creative and innovative…all with the intention of being an effective leader. This cannot happen if the manager is consumed by “difficult” employees…most “difficult” (or dissatisfied) employees require our time, attention…and micromanagement. This class focuses on the intersection between delegation and micromanagement in the coaching process. This is essential to staff/employee development...or staff mismanagement. Offering the appropriate coaching strategies to each individual is of utmost importance. This class will focus – through the prism of Situational Leadership - on the role of the manager in the delegation and micromanagement process, and how to most effectively use the expertise and skills of direct-reports to get the job done most efficiently. You will also learn how to identify and overcome barriers to delegation, and to whom and how to delegate tasks.
