Seminar – Delegation: Effective Delegation Techniques

Achieving Great Results Through Others

Effective Delegation Techniques: Achieving Great Results Through OthersDo you work ten hours a day? Do you take work home on weekends? One symptom of overwork is improper
delegation. Productive people know how to get help and delegate. John F. Kennedy surrounded himself with smart people and told them about his goal. He said, “Within ten years, we’re going to put someone on the moon.” He never told anyone how to do it, but it happened anyway. Delegation is an extension of your own hands: the more you can multiply your hands, the more successful you can be.
