Event Description

Delegate Like a Pro and Get the Results You Want (Without Micromanaging)

When you plan your workday, the first thing you should consider like any successful manager is what you can delegate. Proper delegation reduces your stress and work overload, makes employees feel valued, and leads to greater departmental/team achievement. Clear, precise, and detailed delegation enables your employees to contribute at their highest capacity, and gives you more time to take advantage of opportunities that lead to future success. But not many people know how to get results through delegation.

Learn how to delegate like a pro and get the results you want using Microsoft Outlook in this webinar by Karla Brandau. Brandau will walk you through the different components of delegation—such as clarity of spoken words, appropriate fit of task to employee, follow-up without micromanaging, and using Microsoft Outlook as your delegation partner. Brandau will show you how to use Microsoft Outlook to set objectives, assign responsibilities to individual employees, keep on top of your team members’ progress, and hold them accountable.

After learning how to use Microsoft Outlook’s powerful features, you’ll find delegating and following up stress-free, and your employees will be able to work steadily toward the final deadline. Without delegation, your success is limited—this webinar will show you how to become a managerial super-achiever.
