131: [Solo] How to Delegate Right and Reduce Your Stress on the TalentGrow Show with Halelly Azulay

Effective delegation is an essential supervisory skill. Any leader who supervises the work of others must learn to delegate effectively in order to accomplish his or her goals. As you move into a leadership role you must remove some of the work you previously accomplished on your own in order to make time for performance management and leadership tasks. And because that work still must be completed, you will need to delegate it to your staff.

On this solo episode of the TalentGrow Show, Halelly summarizes the barriers and benefits of delegating and describes a step-by-step process to help you delegate successfully, reduce your stress, grow your talent, and create better teams. Take a listen, weigh in with your own opinion, and share with others!
