Managers have some tasks that they need to do, but their primary job is to make sure that others are doing what they have been assigned to accomplish the mission and goals of the organization. Effective managers know what responsibilities to delegate to allow themselves time to plan, to collaborate with others in the organization, and to monitor the performance of their employees, making sure to give them adequate feedback and development opportunities. Delegation and Empowerment are both very useful management tools and techniques. 

Empowering team members are really the process of delegating decision-making authority and responsibility to them. Empowerment is a way to give employees greater authority and responsibility to take care of the needs of the customer and to provide employees with the means for making influential decisions.

Delegating, as a coaching tool, is the act of assigning and entrusting assignments and responsibilities to others. When leaders empower their employees, those employees are able to take on greater responsibility and authority. In order to do so, employees must be given the resources to make this happen.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Ways to prepare for delegating
