As a manager or leader you probably find yourself with a lot of competing demands on your time. You might even be struggling to deliver on your key objectives.

All of these myths are just that. Truth is if you want to prosper as a manager or leader, you need to be willing to delegate. So what is stopping you delegating?
Since 2006 I’ve worked with in excess of 8,000 accountants and professionals in workshops, seminars and one to one helping them land their next jobs and become better leaders, presenters and business partners. Before that I spent 25 years in accountancy climbing the career ladder from Payments Clerk to FD. I’m a CIMA Fellow, Certified Professional Coach and Team Coach Facilitator.
