Delegation Skills


“The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.” (Theodore Roosevelt)

As businesses grow there is an ever increasing need for managers to effectively delegate.   Delegation as a process is relatively simple in theory but in reality many managers find it hard to ‘let go’ and consequently performance and morale suffers.

Delegation Skills courses can help supervisors and managers to:

  • Get results through their team
  • Encourage team members to take responsibility for tasks that they should be doing, i.e. the tasks that are no cost effective for the manager to do
  • Transfer responsibility and develop confidence in others
  • Up-skill and develop team members
  • Improve performance and productivity

Who Should Attend

Our Delegation Skills courses are aimed at supervisors and managers at all levels that are required to delegate in their role and want to know how it should be done to increase staff motivation, personal ownership and accountability and team performance.


This practical Delegation Skills training course is designed to successfully help managers share the workload whilst giving colleagues support to accomplish the task and develop as a valuable member of a team.

By the end of this course, you will have:

  • Learnt what should and shouldn’t be delegated
  • Understood the levels of delegation and how effective delegation is managed
  • Demonstrated the skills and behaviours that will enable them to instil confidence in others and deal with differing ability levels
