  Delegation
  • Examine an empowering model of delegation
  • Practice using the delegation model to increase your effectiveness
Session 2 is the following day.  Motivating employees
  • Identify overall coaching and motivation strategies using the Can Do/Will Do grid
  • Explore how motivation impacts employee performance
  • Examine intrinsic rewards
  Evaluation and follow-up
  • Explore the performance pyramid as a model to help you evaluate employee performance
