As managers are promoted in your organization, they face a number of challenges, including how to “let it go” – that is, handing off responsibilities to direct reports.

Delegation should be one of the tools used most often in a manager's toolbox, yet it is a skill many leaders shy away from or, quite simply, don't know how to do effectively.

In this program, Leila Bulling Towne, one of SHRM's most popular webcast hosts, will help you understand the “sweet spot” that lies somewhere between micro-managing and being an absentee manager.

You will get tips on how managers can:

  • Avoid common excuses on why they "can't" delegate
  • Understand the benefits of delegation and how effective delegators increase employee engagement
  • Review the language they use when they delegate--in order to empower and inspire employees
