Deciding To Delegate

Tuesday, August 22, 2017

Almost every business owner has too much to do and not enough time to do it in. But there is a solution - let your team members take some of the weight off your back by learning how to delegate effectively.

Delegation is one of the hardest things to learn because it involves relinquishing control over certain parts of the business to others. But as a business grows, delegation becomes essential - it frees you to concentrate on doing what you do best.

Delegation involves not just asking someone to do a job, but empowering them to use their intelligence and make decisions about how and when the job should be done.

Don't make the mistake of delegating only the boring or routine jobs. If they must be done, distribute them as evenly as possible while spreading the more interesting jobs generously.

This way, your team members will stay keen and motivated.
