You have way too much to do, you’re buried in work, and it seems there’s no way out from under it all. But there is: delegation. Yes, you know it’s important to do and you know it will save you time and help others develop new skills.
So Why Aren’t You Delegating?
A real concern is that many leaders won’t delegate. What’s your excuse? Do you believe that you can do the task faster, better and more efficiently, rather than taking the time to explain it to others? Are you a new leader struggling to shift from doing to delegating? Are you an experienced leader who doesn’t trust that the task will be done the right way? Do you have a lack of knowledge on how to delegate? Do you feel guilt associated with giving more work to your team? Do you fear showing weakness in your ability to get the job done? Do you fear losing control of your projects? Do you just enjoy doing the work yourself?
It’s Time to Drop the Excuses!
Lack of effective delegation will almost always limit a leader from achieving their primary job of accomplishing the mission and goals of the organization.Take stock of the constraints on your time. If you are swamped, and especially if you find yourself having to turn down new work, this is a sign that you are not delegating enough.
You’re Ready to Delegate. Here’s Some Tips on Doing it Effectively.
