Delegating duties to others


Hello readers, have you considered delegating tasks to your subordinates. It is one of the ways to help your business grow. No matter how good you are, the growth of your business will be limited if you do not learn to delegate duties to others. This is because you cannot do everything yourself, so you will have to trust your subordinate to make good decisions when it comes to making decisions about duties you have delegated to them. You will have to train your staff well in order to be able deliver result according to your own standard.

You do not just delegate duties to just anyone, you should delegate duties to staff that have the skills to deliver results. Delegating duties to your staff can help your staff develop their skills which will be good for the business. You may be thinking they might not be able to deliver result the way you will do, this may be true, however, training them well will help your staff deliver results the way you like them to. Its good to aim for excellence and not perfectionism, delegating duties to individuals who you think are capable of carrying out the job is way of aiming for excellence.

Choose the tasks you want to delegate carefully, it could be tasks that you find uninteresting and you know the other person finds it interesting. It could also be a task you cannot carry out. The best managers do not know everything but are able to manage people well. A manager that studied business administration in school might need an engineering job to be done, so here it goes you cannot do everything your self.

When delegating duties you must give clear instructions so that the person you are delegating the duties to knows what to be done. Give instructions in such a way that the person does not feel insulted. You should always give credit to the person that completed the tasks, let it be known to others that the person completed the task. The individual that you delegate duties to should be given a measurable tasks with a deadline.
