In this session, bring your real life experiences and uncover solutions on proper ways to delegate to people at each development level, novice to expert, and how to build bench strength as a result of proper empowerment and delegation.  This course is approved for the Effective Management Certificate.

What Does It Mean To Have a Problem
People change because they think they have a problem, not because you think they have a problem. It is very common for people to not understand their role in their own problems and their role in the solutions. If helping professionals do not recognize this and the reasons behind it, their attempts to help others will be met with resistance. The Stages of Change model is an established evidence-based proactive that facilitates the change process, especially in those not ready for change. This workshop will explore Stages of Change and other aspects of a client-centered approach to help others change.
