Event Description

Learn to Use Tasks and Calendar Together in Microsoft Outlook to Delegate Better

Your success as a manager depends on the output of your direct reports. You are meant to ask questions like: are deadlines being met? Is the work completed to the standards expected? Are team members clear on the parameters of the assignment? The answers to these questions depend on your delegation and follow-up skills. Employees don’t want to be micromanaged, but they need a clear vision of the scope of the assignment, what a successfully completed assignment looks like, and dates for check-in meetings and the “drop dead” deadline. Planning and organization is the key to keeping employees, assignments and projects on schedule. Microsoft Outlook makes delegation easier as your technology partner.

Join this session with expert speaker Karla Brandau who will review the fundamental principles of delegation and how to integrate those principles into the tool of Microsoft Outlook. In this session, Karla will review a checklist for superior delegation tactics and help you understand how Microsoft Outlook can be your reliable partner in the delegation process. Karla will share how by handing over the technical details and reminders to Microsoft Outlook, you can ensure delivery of successfully completed assignments and projects. With what you learn during this session, you can set your team on the path to deliver superior performance and simplify your workload. By making technology your friend and personal assistant, you will have more time to inspiring leadership.

With this 21st-century superior delegation session, you can stay assured that nothing will slip through the cracks and each team member will be accountable for their tasks. This session will give you clear instructions on how to manage employee workflow by creating group calendars, assuring deadlines with mid-check points are on direct reports’ calendars, having direct reports send you regular status reports, and scheduling regular face-to-face meetings with Microsoft Outlook. You will get tips for delegating that include the three folders of Outlook: the Inbox, Tasks and the Calendar. You will also learn about the six delegation levels that make sense when choosing how much responsibility and accountability to delegate.
