Abstract

This unpublished chapter from an edited book demonstrates how junior managers and supervisors and even more experienced managers and leaders can enhance their skills in time management and delegation.

Time management and delegation are two distinctly different aspects of management and leadership, and they are also, inextricably intertwined. Time management deals with your ability to manage your own time and if you’re in a management or leadership role it will also involve helping to manage the time of others (Mullins, 2007). Delegation is the art of entrusting the completion of a task to another person(s) within certain parameters. During the process of this chapter, I will reflect upon key learning points that I have accumulated through my experience as a manager and leader in the sport, exercise, fitness, and health sectors. I will also incorporate some reflective learning and practice and demonstrate to you how self-awareness and reflective practice have influenced my development as a leader and manager. Firstly, we will begin with a situation I encountered whilst managing a health, sports, and fitness complex.
