We’ve all heard of ‘micro-managers’ – managers that excessively supervise staff and possibly provide a little too much ‘constructive criticism’! Ring any alarm bells? Learning how to delegate successfully will not only ensure your team are developing new and valuable skills, you’ll also have more time to fine-tune and enrich your role as a manager or team leader.
Delegation for Success is an online program that will teach you how to direct and delegate successfully as a manager, and steer and motivate your team to the next level via effective delegation.
In this professional development course, you will discover how to recognise team member potential, establish clear objectives and goals, communicate with clarity and direction, and delegate tasks to the right people.
You will also learn how to give constructive criticism to improve performance, avoid demotivating actions, establish levels of responsibility and undertake delegation performance reviews.
On completion of this course, you will be able to increase communication, build efficient teams, celebrate your collective success, and develop your skills as both a manager and a mentor.

When you study with Australian Online Courses, you will be assessed using a competency-based training method.
Competency-based training focuses on the achievement of skills and knowledge against set criteria to meet industry-standard and is not benchmarked against other students’ work.
In this course, the assessment will be comprised of written assignments and exercises, which may include short answer questions, reports, essays, research projects and reflective tasks.
If you do not achieve a competency result on your first attempt, you have two more attempts to pass your assessment. So, you have three attempts in total to obtain a competency result.
In this way, you can complete your course in your own time and at your own pace with the assistance of unlimited tutor support.
