Double the Results! Halve the Effort!

The Workshop


Double the results!

Halve the effort!

Do you have more work to do than hours available?

Do you start your work when everyone has left for the day?

Do you have a never ending ToDo List?



In a fast changing work environment you have to continually prioritise what you can actually achieve in a day, week, month or year. It’s impossible to do it all on your own.


You feel it would be easier if you just do it yourself. You want to delegate but don’t know how. You don’t know if you can trust the work will get done to the right standard.


Are you ready to stop drowning, reduce stress, get more done, and go home on time?

Delegate: Double the results, halve the effort

  • Everyone is already too busy, I have no one to delegate to.
  • It’s just easier if I do it myself.
  • I tried delegating but it all went wrong.
  • It’s just quicker if I do it myself.
  • I’m not sure / confident they’ll do it to my standard.
  • I don’t know what I can actually delegate to my team.
  • I’m too busy to delegate.
  • If I delegate work away won’t people think I’m being lazy or that I’ll then have nothing to do?
  • I’m too busy to delegate.
  • I don’t want the blame if it goes wrong (again).
  • I tried to delegate once and it left me with double the work. I had to fix the mistakes and then do the whole task again.

These are all common comments made by incredibly astute and smart managers, supervisors and frontline leaders regarding delegation. Underlying these comments is fear and trust: these are normal human conditions that can be turned around when the steps to delegating are known. Managers fear being shown up by others; they have a fear of the unknown – “what will happen?”; they fear who will get the credit, or worse, the blame and the effect that will have on their own job security.

With the ever increasing demand to get more done, in less time, without extra resourcing, delegation needs to be a key skill for any successful manager or leader.

When you can identify the type of delegator, you can then implement the right steps to become a successful leader using delegation for cost effective development and boosted productivity.

According to a study conducted by Gallup looking at CEO’s with high delegator talent generated 33% greater revenue than those with lower levels of delegating skills.

Delegating is still one of the most under-utilised tools in a manager’s skills toolkit. According to a study conducted by the Institute for Corporate Productivity, 46% of the 332 polled companies are concerned with their workers delegation skills, yet only 28% conduct delegation training.

In March 2013, in an article, it noted that 53% of business owners believe they can grow their business by more than 20% if they delegate only 10% of their workload to someone else.

Knowing how to delegate properly now I see how I can discharge work more efficiently; I now work on tasks that are a more appropriate use of my time. Because I engage the team more and use delegation for development they are far more involved, happy and productive. I love caring for my team and patients but managing my team was getting stressful; now that I am so much more confident delegating, my stress levels are down. I love my job!

I thought that by telling the team what and how to do tasks was being helpful.I now realise that I was inadvertently impacting moral, performance and productivity. I’m getting so much more out of the team now that I follow Sally’s process.

Couldn’t recommend Sally highly enough. Sally took our after lunch session of our National conference and got the group really going. She was engaging, developed relationships with individuals within the group and even more impressively arrived early to watch our key note speaker to ensure some continuity in the presentations. Thank you Sally for all your work leading up to, during and after the session.

Sally is the best! I was lucky to work with her on the Productive Leader Seminar on Nov 18th 2018 in Kuwait. One of the most cooperative and professional speakers I have worked with. Not only she is engaging, knowledgeable and interactive during the seminar, but also she is a smooth communicator, understanding and modest when dealing with others. She was very present and responsive from the first contact and contributed in making a very successful event with a very high clients’ feedback. I am glad I had the opportunity to work with her and will never hesitate to work with her again whenever there’s an opportunity.
