Leadership Series

Up next: Delegate to Empower Employees and Improve Performance.

8:30 – 10 a.m. Wednesday, October 17

For emerging leaders, the shift from doing to leading is one of the most difficult transitions to make. But learning to delegate is the best way to keep your business running smoothly and avoid manager burnout. Learn how to change your thinking and embrace performance accountability through delegation at Business Growth MAP’s fifth forum on leadership on Oct. 17. Al Tong discusses how to systematize accountability, yield predictable results and streamline your operations while resisting micromanagement.
