Delegate Purposefully

Delegation should not be the action of simply offloading a task that you’ve procrastinated or do not want to do. In order for delegation to benefit you and your organization, it must be approached thoughtfully, keeping in mind each of your coworker’s strengths as well as your own. For each task, consider if it will suit the assigned person’s interests and merits. After delegating a task; however, it is not out of sight, out of mind!

Coach and Motivate

Once you’ve delegated a task, it’s important to still be present in the process. This includes establishing goals and expectations, being a good listener, and motivating your coworkers!

For successful delegation, you must be honest, compassionate, and knowledgeable. This will instill confidence in your team to approach you with questions.

Delegation is Collaborative

Delegation is more than just assigning tasks. It’s a form of collaboration and is an essential skill for an organization to master.

Remember to consider the strengths of your coworkers, hone your own motivating qualities, and remember delegation is an important part of teamwork.
