Why you should delegate tasks to subordinates
Delegation is the assignment of any responsibility or authority to another person (normally from a manager to a subordinate) to carry out specific activities.
It is one of the core concepts of management leadership. To delegate effectively, writing clear objectives of the task, providing the resources they need to use, the name of the person they need to talk, specifying the date to be due are vital to your team members to get your expectations done. However, the person who delegated the work remains accountable for the outcome of the delegated work.
Delegation empowers a subordinate to make decisions. Once you have concerns that your subordinate doesn’t have enough expertise to do the job well, make sure you offer some help.
If properly done, delegation is not the fabrication. If you have delegated, let them get on with it. Don’t interrupt too much. Just tell them your expectations and keep yourself informed, like requiring a report in a monthly period. Interrupt only when you really feel things are not developing as you think right.
The opposite of effective delegation is micromanagement, where a manager provides too much input, direction, and review of delegated work. Yet some main responsibilities should be retained yourself. Don’t delegate tasks such as boring administrative tasks to others simply because you don’t want them, i.e. it is a shifting of decision-making authority from one organizational level to a lower one.
One strategic leadership skill is to delegate thing which can be regularly checked, like emphasizing whether monthly targets to be attained. In general, delegation is good and can save money and time, help in building skills, and motivate people.
In a nutshell, don’t micromanage too much! Be clear and helpful, otherwise you may prevent progress and finally you may find no one could be delegated!
