How Delegation Can Be Easy and Seamless With Microsoft Outlook!

The first question that managers should ask when they look at their task list is, “What can I delegate?” The job of a manager 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 for not delegating is 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!” In truth, the inner fear is “I will lose my power.”

Join this live webinar by expert speaker Karla Brandau, if you can check off one or two of these reasons that make you resist delegating. The session will explains the principles of successful delegation and will explore how delegation can be made easy and seamless by using Microsoft Outlook.

Many manager try to succeed in delegating tasks through email. If you are one of those, you are leaving a significant portion of the software unused. This course highlights the unique features of Microsoft Outlook that enable delegation and explains the benefits of the feature.
