Improve Your Delegating With These Tips

Improve Your Delegating With These Tips

In my experience, staff are promoted into leadership roles and then develop them once there. This is despite the fact that a better approach is to give them the tools to do the job first and then promote them into the role once equipped. In the first scenario, the new leader is left unsupported and drowning. Newly promoted leaders often feel they must prove themselves by achieving a lot in their first year. However, they risk burn-out if they try to do it all themselves. A sign of a great leader is one who is confident enough to delegate effectively.

Start or Restart Numbering for Lists

Start or Restart Numbering for Lists in PowerPoint 365 for Mac

Imagine that you have a long numbered list that forms the content within your PowerPoint slide. Now, it is not uncommon for slides to have numbered lists that comprise twenty lines, and that is singularly unfortunate because even if members of your audience have perfect eyesight, they won't be able to read the teeny-weeny sized text! And let us face the fact that too much text is downright boring, and nowadays any sort of bulleted or numbered lists seem to signify a poorly designed slide. One approach you can take to combat this problem is by dividing your list across multiple slides.
