You can’t do it all.
You know this, but still you try. Even as more work and more responsibility get piled on, you shoulder it.
You might feel that it saves time to just take care of a task yourself. Maybe you doubt that anyone else can do what you do. Or, you could be hanging on to assignments and hovering over tasks because you just don’t have a solid process for delegating.
Delegating effectively isn’t just telling someone what to do or assigning them tasks. It means giving authority and responsibilities to individuals or a team and providing the resources, direction, and support needed to achieve expected results.
Delegation shows real trust in your team and involves giving someone the authority to do something that is normally part of your job — along with the help they need to do it.
Delegation skills free you up for other things and help prevent you from getting overworked and burnt out .
But to delegate your workload effectively, you need practice and patience.
When you’re struggling, remember that delegation is key to developing your team members and direct reports to readily accept and excel at a range of challenges — and a hallmark of effective leadership.
