Tips for successfully delegating tasks
1. Specify the task and find out the results, not the course. A method that is effective for you should not work for others. You may be doing something a certain way because you were taught 20 years ago. When you delegate the work that needs to be done, imagine what a successful result should look like, and let the other person find their own way to implement the assigned project. Who knows, maybe you can learn something from them?
2. Give enough energy to complete the task successfully. If the person receiving the task needs to get your approval for each or most of the actions you have taken, you can also do the work yourself. Give your employees free rein and you will achieve the desired results.
3. Follow the course, but let the people work freely.
4. Be open to help and feedback. The fact that you don’t control on a micro-scale doesn’t mean that you can disappear completely. Let the employee assigned the task know that you are always ready to answer questions or check your progress.
5. Reward and appreciate effort and not just the effects. An employee who is trying to do this job for the first time may not do everything correctly. Make sure that you value and reward your efforts and activities. The next time you start working, employees will be able to build on the success of previous efforts.
Another important tip. Don’t throw your little things at your employees. Placing a job is not an excuse to wash your hands of small things, you don’t want to do it. Employees will notice this strategy and will not see any opportunities for development in their tasks.
By effectively delegating responsibilities, you can expand the scope of what can be achieved, as well as develop your skills and strength in the group you manage.
