YOU CAN’T DO IT ALL! It’s time to delegate.
Delegation is perhaps the most important skill for a manager of people to learn and master. You can’t do everything yourself, and you’ll go crazy if you try! At the same time, delegation is challenging and it takes both commitment and an investment of time to get it right. The good news is, once you start delegating well, you’ll be surrounding yourself with capable and empowered team members.
This course follows the story of child prodigy, Brianca, and “Play All Day”, the toy company she started with children like herself. Brianca learns quickly that the only way to accomplish her goals is to delegate well to those around her. Watch and learn as the “Play All Day” team grows together into a high-functioning team where each member feels valued and important.
This course has six Lessons that include both instruction and vignettes, plus a bonus Lesson on task management tools to help you keep track of your team’s work. By the end of this course, you’ll be inspired to go forth and delegate!
