Improve Delegation

Why train delegation skills in your leaders?

Leaders who hold on too tight to tasks only end up showing their teams that they don’t trust them. Sounds harsh, but it’s true. The only way to empower your team (and unshackle yourself from ‘doing it all’) is to break tasks down and delegate, building in strong briefing and quality control processes. In leadership, the power is in the distribution, not in the doing.

What leaders will explore

  • A new way of looking at ‘Urgent/Important’
  • Process break down for task delegation
  • Overcoming the ‘doing complex’
  • Briefing and quality controlling work
  • Role of coaching and feedback in delegation

What leaders will apply

  • Ability to discern high value tasks for roles
  • Skills for breaking down work processes
  • Strategies for regulating ‘micromanagement’
  • Sound briefing and quality control methods
  • Coaching and feedback when delegating

Thinka is very good at understanding our business and creating engaging content that will make an impact with our people.

    Our in-person workshops maximise opportunities for robust conversation, experiential activities and intensive group work. This is no ‘death by PowerPoint’ experience – our facilitators are skilled in presenting and leading immersive experiences that get the most out of people. Supported by multimedia, attractive takeaway pages and practical strategies for using back on the job – our in-person workshops build a formidable bridge between exploration and application. We have a 10 person minimum for an in person workshop.

    Our virtual workshops breathe fresh life into the online experience with their almost ‘radio show’ feel. Our expert facilitators use a combination of multimedia, questioning techniques and break out activities to target micro-skills – with a focus on application. Supported by an online platform hosting custom-built workshop materials, participants can be assured of a lively, dynamic session that has a distinct bias to action. We have a 6 person minimum for a virtual workshop.
    This audience includes ‘middle management’ leaders who support team members in capability building. The skills are geared toward increasing leadership effectiveness and driving performance in team members in modern work contexts. These skills are flexible and built to grow with individuals as they evolve in their leadership journeys.

    Thinka believes that every learner needs to walk away being able to do something differently once they’ve engaged in a learning solution. The real power is in every individual applying their learning. Our behaviour-based methods, supported by the latest research, are key to making the steps for change relevant and realistic.

    Thinka supports with methods like storytelling, experiential activities or rich questioning, but ultimately, we know the integration between solution and real world is the most crucial part of the learning experience. That is why we look for ways to ‘build a bridge’ between the solution we provide and what happens back out on the job.

    Whether it’s an application template, a set of strategies, some tips or a ‘how to’ model – we work hard to provide every learner with not just information but the tools they need to make a real difference.
