Just Promoted? You Need Delegation Skills
Just promoted to a leadership position? Are you working to gain credibility? Are you surprised at how hectic and demanding the role of a leader is? Were you promoted for your technical expertise and now that expertise is less important than your ability to get the work done through others. Do you feel inadequately prepared for your new role as leader? If yes, read the new app, 2-Way Delegation. It will give you hands-on tips to succeed in your new role.
The following story demonstrates how delegation affects your leadership success. It was told by a leader who read the 2-Way Delegation app.
“Probably one of the most impactful things I learned from the app is to describe the meaning of the work to the employee (sometimes, it is easy for me to think the meaning is obvious, even though it might not be).
I did a “test run” of sorts practicing delegation skills. After applying the tips in the Analyze phase, I had my initial meeting with the employee I chose to do the work. At the end of the meeting, he said, ‘I am HONORED you chose me to do this.’ HONORED?! I couldn’t believe it! My workload was lightened and he was HONORED to do the work…and it was all because I went about explaining the work in a completely different manner than I normally would have (if I would have even delegated it at all), using the techniques in the app. It really motivated me to continue using this process to motivate and develop employees, while lightening my day-to-day work so I can focus on work more apt to my skill set.”
Look for 2-Way Delegation in the App Store or Google Play. It is 46 pages of robust content, exercises, and community interaction that teaches the art and skill of 2-way delegation.
