Almost 60% of managers never receive training for their first leadership role. This frontline leadership training course can correct that. Over the course of 6 weeks, this interactive, engaging online learning experience gives high-potential talent the confidence and skills they need to be successful in a frontline leadership role, increase personal effectiveness, and build relationships to get work done
Whether within a team, workgroup, task force, division, department, community, or an entire organization, there must be a clear sense of shared direction, alignment, and commitment. The group needs agreement about its direction and what they are trying to accomplish together; they must have alignment for effective coordination of the work in service of their shared direction; and members with commitment prioritize the success of the collective.
Delegating effectively isn’t just telling someone what to do or assigning them tasks. It means giving authority and responsibilities to individuals or a team and providing the resources, direction, and support needed to achieve expected results. Delegation shows real trust in your team and involves giving someone the authority to do something that is normally part of your job — along with the help they need to do it.
