Mastering the Delegation Process: How to Improve Results, "Grow" Employees, & Boost Your Career
Have you ever given a project to a trusted employee, only to find that the result was not what you expected? Have you put off starting important assignments because of the work piled up on your desk? Perhaps you have been criticized for micromanaging simply because you want to see that things are done properly. Or maybe you've been shocked when you learned too late that an important project was seriously behind schedule.
