How is your workload? If you currently have a lot of things on your plate and your deadline is fast approaching, one of the practical solutions for this difficult situation is delegation.
The act of delegation, then, involves conferring (some of) your functions or powers on another so he or she can act on your behalf.
If you are a part of a team and taking on the responsibility of a leader or perhaps a similar position of authority, delegation plays an important role in boosting your productivity.
Giving a level of autonomy definitely increases morale and promotes collaboration and innovation. When you delegate the right way, it doesn’t only help you become efficient but also give your team members a chance to develop their individual skills and look for other opportunities to grow.
“If you really want to grow as an entrepreneur, you’ve got to learn to delegate.”
“• Richard Branson.
“Are we limiting our success by not mastering the art of delegation? It’s simply a matter of preparation meeting opportunity.”
“• Oprah Winfrey
“Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don’t interfere as long as the policy you’ve decided upon is being carried out.”
“• Ronald Reagan
“The strength of the group is the strength of the leaders.”
“• Vince Lombardi
