Effective Delegation Training

Started on July 13, 2020

Effective delegation is an essential skill to learn if you are running a business or working in management. The ability to delegate gives you more time to work on the goals of your company while routine tasks are delegated to others. It also empowers and encourages others to put their best into their work without feeling they have someone constantly watching them. Importantly, the ability to delegate is a prerequisite for any real growth in a company as there is a limited number of tasks you are physically able to do.  Delegating efficiently to your team enables better streamlining and faster growth in the business.

Delegation is something many managers struggle to do well.   Many managers fail to delegate well due to is an unwillingness to demonstrate tasks to other. Managers often struggle to let go of tasks they enjoy and tasks that give a sense control over operations.

Effective delegation requires strong inter-personnel skills and the ability to identify the right staff members to delegate to.  Consider the qualities you want in the people you delegate to.  These may include their commitment to the success of the company or the knowledge and experience they bring to the task. It is also worth considering the level of authority each employee is capable of assuming.

Communication skills are a vital part of effective delegation as employees need to be clear on what their responsibilities are. They also need to know the level of authority that is being passed to them.  These new responsibilities, and promotions, need to be understood and accepted by the wider workforce, particularly those most affected. Forbes magazine offer valuable insights into effective delegation in The Secret to Effective Delegation.
