Moving from Me to We with Delegation
Doing something yourself may seem easier and feel safer than handing it off to someone else - particularly if you have been doing the task well for a long time. But if you don't learn to delegate, your team won't develop and grow, and you'll never fully make the shift from "me" to "we." When you delegate, you empower the people who work with you and help them grow. Delegation is also key to helping you grow and develop as a strategic thinker because it helps free you up to focus on strategic tasks. It's more than just a critical leadership skill; it's a mindset that many leaders overlook. If leaders don't learn to delegate, they won't be able to grow their span of influence and they may end up stunting their own career growth. In this course, you'll learn about the key aspects of delegation and why strong delegation skills are important for a leader. You'll also learn how to recognize the signs that you may need to delegate more in your leadership, as well as how to delegate effectively.

You'll learn how to evaluate and adjust your own style in regard to priority management principles, and how individual personalities and motivators can drive priorities.
