So much to do, but who’s going to do it?
14 October 2021
13:00 to 14:30
So much to do, but who’s going to do it? Directing, distributing and delegating work.
Date and time: Thursday 14th October 13:00 - 14:30 UK time.
Speaker: Loraine Kennedy
We are now in the fourth quarter of 2021. As the world begins to return to ‘normal’ after nearly two years of the Covid-19 pandemic, we grapple with what the new normal is going to look like. What will change, what will remain the same?
In this webinar we will consider how the new normal is going to affect the distribution and delegation of tasks, responsibilities and accountabilities at work. How is everything getting done in your school now? What has changed in terms of priorities, people and tasks, or in what a leader needs to do? Are you still doing things that you could delegate to others? Does delegating seem easier or more difficult than before Covid?
Together we will look at how leadership, personnel changes, new working norms, higher expectations, and constant challenges might begin changing the task and responsibility landscape at work.
Loraine will start the discussion with a review of why the subject of delegating and empowering staff is even more important now than ever. She will provide some ideas and tips on how to delegate effectively before opening up the discussion to participants to share their thoughts, concerns, ideas and success stories on how to get things done at work, whilst still keeping one’s sanity! Come along and join in the discussion.
