The Art of Delegation

Malcolm will explore the Art of Delegation in a hybrid environment, including the dynamically changing leadership styles required – mirrored against competencies and the associated risks of people working in isolation.

There have been advantages and disadvantages of these new working arrangements over the last two years, in terms of human motivation, and these are considered in terms of leveraging maximum motivation going forwards – given that hybrid environments are probably here to stay.

The concept and methodology of grip is explored in remote working and hybrid environments with regard to maintaining high employee engagement. 

The session concludes with five essential action points to take away to ensure that your new ways of working are as equally productive as ever.
