TUSC Brown Bag: Delegation

 With Mike Noll, Training and Development Manager

 

Are you interested in learning or getting a quick refresher in a key supervisory skill?  Whether you are a current or future supervisor, this workshop is designed to enable participants to be more productive in their professional life by improving the way they delegate tasks. At the end of this session, participants should be able to use the steps to successful delegation, determine what to delegate, and learn why delegation fails.

Participants should bring a list of current tasks, projects, functions, or responsibilities that they are delegating or have delegated in the past.

Faculty and staff working to complete the non-degree Management and Supervision Certificate offered through the Office of Human Resources can count this as an elective in the Managing the Work category!

Faculty, staff, and students are welcome. Please RSVP by Monday, November 12 to
tusc@towson.edu with the name of the event, your name, and department.

Lunch will not be provided, but please feel free to bring your own. Parking around the Administration Building is limited, so please consider taking the shuttle or walking. For more information on TUSC, please visit our website at http://www.towson.edu/tusc.
