Delegation and Time Management: The Secret to Management Success

Description

The best managers do two things really well:

  • Delegating tasks and projects to staff to accomplish the work of the department/division and to enable for staff learning opportunities and skill development, and
  • Managing their time effectively by setting priorities and having a plan in place to ensure they do the right things at the right time.

Both of these are skills that are necessary to manage staff and meet goals and objectives in a fast-paced environment where we are constantly under pressure to accomplish more in less time. The more pressure we are under, the more difficult it is to focus on developing these skills.
