Instructor for this course

Delegating is something we do all the time, from having children do their chores to outsourcing significant portions of your business.  This course is designed to help you improve your skills by understanding how different people think, learn and receive information in a number of settings – from one-on-one to meetings.  

In addition, you will have the opportunity to learn about your own style of management, how to adapt it and utilize the style that is most useful to the situation. Issues of control, which block many managers from delegating effectively, will be discussed in the context of needing perfection instead of striving for excellence.



Learning Objectives

  • Discover new ways to consider how best to delegate-train different types of people, from cognitive styles to cultural differences.
  • Explore your own barriers to delegating effectively.
  • Recognize your own style of management as well as other styles, enabling you to adapt to the most effective style for the situation.
  • Identify many types of meetings and which type is most effective for different management needs.

I love the use of stories. Not only can it relate to management, but it can relate to raising children and simplifies why managing appropriate expectations is so important.

The material and examples were good. I thought the background noise/phone ringing multiple times was a little unprofessional.
