Tuition Cost: $200

Course Type: Classroom

Course Location: DOE Headquarters, Forrestal Building, Washington DC, GH-043

Course Description: Effective Delegation is one of the most powerful tools for leading and directing the work of others.  When used appropriately, delegation allows managers to strategically allocate workload while providing challenging developmental assignments for their staff.

Course Objectives: The workshop shows participants how to design delegation plans for their team.  It covers some of the common myths and misconceptions about delegating work to others and shows how good delegation is customized to the needs and abilities of individual employees.  Managers who effectively delegate not only distribute work more effectively, but also grow the self-confidence and sense of achievement in their staff.  Participants create a personal action plan to help them apply the skills learned from the course to their jobs.

Audience: All DOE Employees
