"BWIS Workshop: Successful Delegation Skills"

Lily Cushenbery, Stony Brook University

Thursday, June 25, 2020, 3:00 pm — See event description for virtual meeting link.

Time is one of the most valuable resources in your organization, but we often feel like we have to do everything ourselves. It's likely that you've been successful in the past because you were a high performer, and you may not be used to relying on others to get your work done. Taking on too much of the work yourself can lead to feeling overwhelmed and spending less time on other key tasks such as thinking more strategically or spending time with others. Research shows that delegation builds confidence in team members and teaches them to take greater initiative and responsibility. In this interactive program, we'll discuss the common misperceptions about delegation and use evidence-based best practices for effectively delegating tasks and empowering others to achieve them. Workshop Highlights: • Evaluate how likely you are to delegate and barriers that may be preventing you from trusting others • Learn guidelines for effective delegation, including resisting "reverse-delegation" where you still end up completing the work yourself • Practice delegation techniques and strategies for monitoring a task To register, click here:
