Delegation - Essential Tool for Managers!   

Managers are not just responsible for their own tasks, they are also responsible for the team they lead and thus, should work to the best of their abilities in helping their team to realize their full potential.

One of the most important and valuable tools in the hands of managers is the art of delegation. Delegation does not mean passing the failure or excuse for failure to someone else. Rather delegation is the toll through which managers are able to streamline work by getting the job done by those most suited for the job. Through the correct use of the art of delegation, managers can tap the full potential of their subordinates while making sure that their team members contributed to the entire work process and emerge as well trained and capable employees.

Essentials of Delegation :

  • In order to equip others to do the job, you must let them know what you want, when you want it and how you want it. Give them the authority to make related decisions and provide them with the know how to achieve it.

  • Delegating a task to someone does not mean losing control. Your staff should know who they have to report to. Train them so that they are capable of operating on your behalf.

  • Decide which tasks should be delegated and which ones should be done by you.

  • Never delegate in excess. If you truly want to energize your subordinates and make them more responsible, start delegating tasks slowly. Begin with a small task and once your team is able to handle the job and you are convinced of their capabilities, delegate more.

  • Always spend time in monitoring the progress and outcome of the delegated task. This should help you in judging whether the process is a success or a failure.
