Delegate To Be More Positively Productive

Delegation is one of the most productive skills you can master. It not only helps you leverage your time, it helps you develop the leadership skills of your team. When you skillfully delegate, you turn over the execution of an assignment or task to someone you trust to deliver the results you need. Here are some tips to make delegation successful.Yes delegation woman binders

  • Generally, any activity that can be done by someone on your team rather than by you is a likely task to be delegated. Don’t spend your time doing things you don’t have to do.
  • Match an employee’s skills with the skills needed to succeed, but provide the employee with an opportunity to grow and develop.
  • Set up the employee for success. Meet and explain the importance of the assignment, your expectations for deliverables, any deadlines, and their level of authority to make decisions.
  • Be available during the assignment to answer questions and give feedback.
  • Avoid micromanaging, but have an open door for questions and guidance. Trust your employees to deliver!

Remember, the more you develop your staff, the more you and your team will be positively productive, and delegation is one of the best ways to do this. See my blog post Avoid These Delegation Pitfalls for more information.
