Being a good delegator often doesn’t come naturally. In fact, I’m guilty of being a pretty terrible delegator myself.
Oftentimes, the risk seems to outweigh the reward — for instance, I might have a project I need finished immediately, and the risk of miscommunication that might occur as I offhand tasks to someone else seems too high for me to bother.
But delegating is a critical skill for any manager to learn, and can increase productivity and revenue for your company’s bottom line — in fact, CEOs who delegate generate 33% greater revenue than those who do not.
Additionally, delegating is often critical for achieving the highest-quality work. Why not delegate if you have someone on your team with talents and skills better suited for a certain task?
Simply put, delegating is critical for your team’s success, and your own sanity. But it’s easier said than done. Fortunately, the folks at Headway Capital put together the following infographic, full of tips and tricks to enable you to get better at delegating. Take a look.
