Learn the Magic of Delegation and Empowerment

@ 12:30
  • Event recording


    Description:

    Every manager or team leader has two jobs when leading others. The first is to successfully complete their assigned tasks and projects while focusing on cost, schedule, and performance. The second is to develop the people on their team so they do their current jobs well but are also able to take on more responsibility and move ahead in their careers. To do both jobs requires time and balance on the part of the manager but offers major benefits for both current projects and the organization’s future. 

    During this session, you will learn the basics of delegation and empowerment and how to apply them in our current Defense Acquisition environment.

    Who should attend this event:

    Any Acquisition professional who want to improve how they work with others and is looking to advance their career.

    The Leading Acquisition Series:

    This Series, on the first Wednesday of each month, will help you grow as an acquisition leader.  Building team success; working effectively through others; or spanning team, functional, and organizational boundaries—all will be covered.  DAU's faculty will share the latest thinking on what it means to lead, with practical defense acquisition examples and suggestions on how to apply what you learn at work.  Time in each session will be set aside to answer your questions.
