Delegating with Purpose

Delegation is critical in today’s “do more with less” business environment. Fewer resources, changing motivations, virtual employees, and global workforces are just some of the challenges of ever-increasing workplace demands.  In this course, you'll learn to address these challenges, gain the commitment of team members, develop individual skills and abilities, and enhance the overall capability and capacity of your team and -- ultimately -- the organization.gears graphic

Coaching for Peak Performance

You will learn about both proactive and reactive coaching. You will have more effective and efficient interactions once you understand the importance of three coaching techniques in this session. It will incorporate a fast-paced activity to help you understand and use the techniques. Since both proactive and reactive coaching discussions can be challenging, you will use your own situations to make the course relevant.
