Presented By: John Graci
When leaders choose not to delegate or empower their staff, they are denying themselves and the employee an opportunity to grow and develop. These days, employees from all of the generations will make a choice to leave an organization if they feel their leader does not have a vested interest in their growth and development. This workshop will demonstrate that through the empowerment of employees, giving them autonomy to make decisions and allowing them to do their job, the leader becomes even more valuable to an organization. See how to overcome the most popular tactics used by employees to resist delegation/empowerment. See how leaders become their own worst enemy, but then blame others for shortfall. By the time this session is over, you will see that appropriate delegation/empowerment just makes plain dollars and sense!
Learning objectives for this session include:
- Overcoming resistance to delegating barriers
- Obtaining more authority/power
- Learning how your leadership style impacts the growth of Baby Boomers, Generation X and Y
