Effectively delegate and maintain oversight of work responsibilities; to leverage the capability of direct reports and staff to deliver outcomes for customers.

Use this material to reflect on your own context and the opportunities that you have to make development part of the way you work. 

Experiential development suggestions

  • Build greater team-autonomy by gradually letting direct reports make more decisions about how the team organises the work
  • Identify successors to your role and grow their capability by assigning them some of your tasks
  • Review how you carry out your role so that you spend more time working-on the business, not working in it – identify the tasks that others should or could be doing.
  • Get some experience in a totally unfamiliar role or area of responsibility where you must draw on the expertise of others
