How to Receive a Delegated Assignment * digital free * (Empowerment) 4-page tipsheet
Saying "yes" to an assignment you have trouble accomplishing does not help anyone. This tipsheet teaches you how to take responsibility for knowing what you can deliver. Skills and strageties for receiving delegated tasks are explained so that you have the confidence you need to effectively discuss - and tackle - new assignments (4 pages). This tipsheet formed the basis for ODT seminars on Empowerment, specifically on How to Receive Delegated Assignments, one of ODT's on novel modules in our "How to Manage Your Boss" seminars. The program was conducted for dozens of high-tech companies in the 1990's.
ODT began as consulting and training company in the field of Employee Empowerment and "Upward Influence", and soon developed a series of training modules on "How to Receive a Performance Appraisal", "How to Receive a Delegated Assignment", "How to Increase Your Personal Power", "Self-Directed Work Teams", as well as a series of instrumented feedback tools and workshops to help communication up (PRIME Match), downward (PRIME Search), and with peers (PRIME Peer). These tools are currently being digitized and will be available in 2019. See this link where they will be posted when they become available.
