The Art of Delegation

The Art of Delegation:

Effective Guidance for Your Direct Reports

Course Description:

Managing has been defined as getting others to reach company goals.

Managers often question why direct reports don’t’ do what they are supposed to do. As a result, Managers often attempt to reach goals by themselves. Rather than blaming others there may be something faulty with the process of delegating the assignments.
