One of the main reasons for the motivation of employees in companies is the lack of delegation. Why? Because when a boss does not delegate its collaborators, is issuing a clear message: I do not trust my team. And that lack of confidence is passed and comes in the strongest terms his collaborators, that increase their insecurity, and also accommodate and will not develop into.
The lack of delegation has soaring costs on innovation and organizational performance nowadays. But what are the main obstacles for executives delegen not effectively? Let's list them:
– Insecurity the boss who thinks he will unseat
– Disorganization Chief, overwhelmed by the urgent
– Control freak the details of the head.
– Do not know how to delegate
As we see, always responsible chief. In my opinion, although we have a collaborator with little experience or knowledge, we must begin the process of delegation from the beginning. Obviously, in the early control much more work, but we must begin early, because that will increase confidence and employee performance, and we will be able to delegate tasks that are not mine long before.
There are prejudices and preconceptions that crush the effectiveness of a manager and delegate that prevent, such as that you delegate, losing him to lose control of the. I often hear executives say they have to be informed in detail of the work of its employees because at any moment they can ask their bosses and have to give immediate response. ¡Gran error! First, in his position do not have to know all the details, because that they have a team, and it is false that they require such a detailed level of information immediately. This are films that managers have to justify their lack of delegation and results.
I suggest that from this moment, do a simple exercise. Repeat to the phrase inwardly: “You delegate, Ganaré power and influence”. This phrase is very true, because when a manager delegates, above is being removed from tasks that do not belong and that they take away a lot of time and effectiveness. Accordingly, can elevate your look and analyze things more global vision and perspective, and also begin to engage in important tasks that really have to do. This will cause your computer not only grow, and increase their performance and motivation. Will assume that himself to gain power and influence, and increase the chances that the address is set on it and decide promote him in the organization.
In the next post I will explain what the 4 phases of effective delegation. So!! Estate alert!!
