If you are a Manager, entrepreneur or responsible for a team or department and are not delegating all tasks and responsibilities you can delegate, then you are hindering the smooth functioning and results of your team, Department and company. So of course. The first thing I propose is to reflect on the following questions:
Are you delegating all tasks you could delegate?
Are You a bottleneck in your company?
Do you think your way of doing things is the best?
Are you afraid to delegate? Why?
Do you love being a Dad or Mom-Chief and Chief solucionarles all problems to your collaborators?
Before explaining a proven model of effective delegation, the first thing you should ask yourself, so totally honest, It is if you identify with any of the following phrases:
– You delegate, I lose power or authority.
– You delegate, I lose control.
– You delegate, my team will make many mistakes and I get in trouble.
– You delegate, You lose my post content, and perhaps remove or replace me think.
– I'm afraid that some of my colleagues learn so much about me that makes me shadow, or remove me the job.
– It takes me less if I do homework.
– I do not have time to explain things, and teach them to do the tasks well.
– They will never do homework with the level of quality with the I resolve I.
Have you identified with any? What are the consequences? Evidently, when you have a belief that you're going to unseat, or you'll lose control and that will get you in trouble with your bosses, or you think mistakenly that do not have time to teach, you're seriously self-limiting. And as much as you explain techniques or processes of how to effectively delegate, you will never escape the vicious circle. You'll still carrying you backpack, unimportant tasks that could solve other people, and of course you'll still overworked and stressed.
And you know what image you're projecting throughout your environment? That of a mediocre boss who has no potential to promote or move up the organization, because it is not able to trust others and to invest the time needed to grow your team. On the way, This kind of boss is not able to expand its vision to devote their valuable time to more important tasks and responsibilities, as strategy, the long-term goals, or development of the people on your team. simply, This lackluster boss is stuck by their own incompetence.
If you do these reflections, it is impossible to progress. You must forget the absurd conviction that you are the best does things, you're a superman or superwoman who is able to do all the tasks. You must overcome the temptation of short-termism (It takes me less if I do) and bet on the long-term benefits.
Assuming you've questioned your limiting beliefs, and you want to bet for being a manager with leadership and strategic long-term vision, effective delegation must meet the following 4 phases (I invite you as the onlending, make a self-criticism of what you're doing wrong, or even you're doing):
