Delegation is the assignment of authority to another person (normally from a manager to a subordinate) to carry out specific activities. It is the process of distributing and entrusting work to another person. Delegation is one of the core concepts of management leadership. The process involves managers deciding which work they should do themselves and which work should be delegated to others for completion.
From a managerial standpoint, delegation involves shifting project responsibility to team members, giving them the opportunity to finalize the work product effectively, with minimal intervention.
The opposite of effective delegation is micromanagement, where a manager provides too much input, direction, and review of delegated work. Delegation empowers a subordinate to make decisions. It is a shifting of decision-making authority as well as responsibility for the results from one organizational level to another lower one. However, a certain level of accountability for the outcome of the work does remain with the person who delegated the work to begin with.
Transformation From I To We:
We can all see this pattern in our bosses, subordinates, and colleagues: They have all the right skills, use the latest management tools, articulate the right messages with the most popular buzzwords, and espouse the right strategies. But underneath something seems to be missing.
The first significant developmental transformation in our leadership journey involves a fundamental shift in orientation: from “I” to “We.” When it comes to measuring our leaders, we first sniff out is whether their arrows are pointing away from or curving back on themselves. If they lead from a self-centered “I” orientation; their arrows point directly back at themselves.
If their “arrows” are pointing away; they are selfless, not self-centered. If our arrows are not pointing away, others will know it. People rarely respond to leaders whose arrows point back at themselves. Becoming a more authentic leader is not enough. We must be clear about why we lead.
A presentation conveys information from a speaker to an audience. Presentations are typically demonstrations, introductions, lectures, or speeches meant to inform, persuade, inspire, motivate, build goodwill, or present a new idea/product.
Presentations usually require preparation, organization, event planning, writing, use of visual aids, dealing with stress, and answering questions. “The key elements of a presentation consists of presenter, audience, message, reaction, and method to deliver a speech for organizational success in an effective manner.”
The term can also be used for a formal or ritualized introduction or offering, as with the presentation of a debutante. Presentations in certain formats are also known as keynote addresses. Interactive presentations, in which the audience is involved, are also represented more and more frequently.
Instead of a monologue, this creates a dialogue between the speaker and the audience. The advantages of an interactive presentation is for example, that it attracts more attention from the audience and that the interaction creates a sense of community.
