Delegation is a great way to save time. Apart from saving time, delegation helps motivate your staff by giving them responsibility. Your team will benefit by participating in activities and the decision making process and therefore becomes more capable and autonomous over time. The organisation will benefit from having a pool of staff that can cover each other, take more responsibility and resolve issues on their own.
As a result, a manager must constantly think about delegating tasks to others not just to save time but also to help the team grow and become more capable.
Depending on how much control you want to have over a delegated task, you can choose from one of the six levels of delegation to control the outcome and also how much time you want to save.
In this exercise, participants will learn about these six levels and will participate in an activity to better understand them.
