Effective Staff Delegation
May 24, 2023
9:00 am -12:00 pm
Delegation is a critical leadership skill. When used effectively, delegation encourages teams to contribute their best work in service of shared organizational priorities and demonstrate mastery, growth, and reliability in their roles as well as mitigate staff burnout. As community needs increase and intensify, the practice also allows nonprofit leaders and supervisors to remain focused on aspects of an organization’s work that are relevant to their roles, efficiently steward organizational resources, and clearly communicate organizational priorities. Delegation can strengthen internal organizational relationships and keep you grounded in your organization’s mission and purpose.
How can a practice foster such results? Join us for Effective Staff Delegation to find out. By the end of this session, participants will:
- Understand the how delegation benefits leaders, teams, and organizations;
- Identify barriers to delegation and strategies to overcome those barriers;
- Learn to assess critical factors – such as competence, ability, autonomy, and capacity – when considering a delegation project; and
- Understand the fundamental components of an effective delegation plan and process.
This workshop will be held at the Greater New Orleans Foundation (919 St. Charles Ave) on Wednesday, May 24th from 9:00am-12:00 pm. This workshop is free, but registration is required. Click here to register.
