Effective Delegation for Team Leaders, Heads of Department and Principals by David Henton

The ability to delegate is one of the most important skills of being a successful school principal, head of department or team leader, yet many struggle with delegation, seeing it as a time-consuming risk that leads to a loss of control and reduced work quality. Delegation handled effectively leads to increased overall efficiency, a stimulated and motivated staff and time savings.

This course provides participants with the skills to set up and implement a structured approach to delegation that provides appropriate monitoring and guidance, including effective feedback to inform, motivate and empower colleagues.

Understanding the three levels of delegation, supports the skill  to assess staff competence and motivation, and provide flexible, situational monitoring as the recipient develops their personal capability to lead. These delegation skills can be learned, and once mastered, are hugely beneficial to the leader, the staff and the whole school.

Learning outcomes 

  • Understand the benefits of effective delegation and the ingrained resistance to ‘letting go’.
  • Know how to grow people safely into new tasks, using the 3 levels of delegation with several typical school environment case studies to relate to.
  • Understand how  to tailor personal monitoring style to suit varying levels of competence and motivation across the staff
