𝗪𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝗗𝗼𝗲𝘀 𝗗𝗲𝗹𝗲𝗴𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗪𝗼𝗿𝗸?
Leaders are told they should delegate, but not much more.
𝗪𝗵𝗲𝗻 your time is disrupted from growing business in ways you absolutely need to engage, then be ready to delegate.
You may hesitate because you want complete control or because delegation requires a new level of responsibility. To reach the next level, you may need to work on your leadership. Seek advice or coaching to push for peak growth.
𝗪𝗵𝘆 does delegation help? Besides growing the company, it forces you to prioritize how to move the business forward. You must define ideal outcomes and which behaviors will get recognized for the company to grow.
𝗪𝗵𝗼 should help? It’s tempting to promote based on longevity and competence in the current role. However, management requires a different skill set. Identify employees who indicated leadership, complement your skills and personality, and bring diverse ideas.
𝗛𝗼𝘄 to delegate? Describe the desired outcomes, list any restrictions, and be a role model*. Keep engaged at the right level and cadence. With meetings, insist on progress, obstacles, and thoughtful solutions.
Like a conductor who orchestrates the right aficionados, melodies, and tempo, you also want perfect harmony.
