Learn How to Effectively Delegate Your Team Tasks with Microsoft Outlook

"What can I delegate?" is the first question managers should ask when looking at their task list. A manager's job is to focus on strategies, not necessarily tactical, daily To-Do list items. Some managers lack confidence to delegate, others hate the push back from busy employees; still others think that employees are overburdened so they do it themselves. Another excuse I have heard for not delegating is the time it takes to explain the task. Managers believe they can do it in less time than it takes to explain what they want done. But the ultimate excuse for refusing to delegate is this: "I want it done right!"

If you can check off one or two of these reasons that make you resist delegating, sign up for this webinar by expert speaker, Karla Brandau. In this session Karla will explain the principles of successful delegation and then explores with you how delegation can be made easy and seamless by using Microsoft Outlook.

By using Microsoft Outlook to improve delegation, employees have built in motivation to stay on track with reminders that can pop up periodically to kick-start self-discipline. Follow-up becomes natural with the tips presented that teaches managers how to stay on top of where each assignment is in the completion cycle. Microsoft Outlook can be a powerful partner in your quest to improve your delegation skills and the need to have employees finish assignments on time. Combine the power of Outlook which everyone opens on a daily basis with this instruction and delegation will become part of your natural, daily workflow.

If your team is using Microsoft Outlook just for email, they are leaving a significant portion of the software unused. The instruction highlights unique Microsoft Outlook features that enable delegation and documents the benefits of the feature. By implementing the techniques, delegation becomes a productive process between manager and employees, enabling everyone to stop spinning their wheels and get more done in less time. Once your entire team has internalized and applied the principles taught in this webinar, you'll be pleased at the growth in efficiency and effectiveness.
