The Art of Delegation

Delegation is essential so that you that can free up time in your busy schedule to focus more on your “big picture” duties as a manager or leader; it’s also about investing in the future of your library. Encouraging your personnel to set new goals and master new skills will help retain your current employees as you raise morale and increase productivity.

This management and supervisory skills webinar will provide participants with the tools needed to nurture management and leadership skills through appropriate and effective delegation of responsibilities. Learn why taking time today to teach and mentor will ultimately free up more time for tomorrow. Topics include practical pros and cons of delegation, preparation to hand over duties and responsibilities, how your library's culture can support success or predict failure, and setting expectations for success.

Following this webinar, you will know how to:

  • Create “cheat sheets” when introducing employees to new tasks and projects.
  • Establish a personal delegation timeline, meaning you know when it is time to let go.
  • Build and nurture a thriving learning environment for both new and seasoned staff.
  • Write quarterly and yearly training goals with employees.
