Delegating with Purpose

May 14, 2014

Delegation is a critical skill for leaders in today's "do more with less" business environment. Fewer resources, changing motivations, virtual employees and global workforces are just some of the challenges leaders face as they attempt to meet ever-increasing workplace demands.

The Harper College for Business seminar “Delegating with Purpose” will take place from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. Friday, May 30, at the Wojcik Conference Center on the College’s main campus, 1200 W. Algonquin Road in Palatine.

The session is the last in Harper’s 2013-2014 Leadership Seminars series on topics ranging from coaching others for peak performance to dealing with difficult people. Attendees will learn to leverage the entire team’s abilities; build the team’s capabilities and capacity through developmental delegations; free up time to focus on mission-critical responsibilities; and delegate with increased confidence.

“A key differentiator for successful businesses is effective leadership,” said Maria Coons, who oversees Harper College for Business. “Research has proven this. The reason is simple: Leaders set the tone and drive creativity and motivation. Interestingly, leadership skills can be learned. These workshops are designed to help leaders at all levels learn new things and develop strategies that ultimately help their businesses thrive and succeed.”

The cost is $149 if registering by May 20. Registration closes May 27. For more information or a complete list of upcoming seminar topics, call 847.925.6640 or visit
