As a business leader, you probably feel the need “to do it all”. While it is true that a leader should know every facet of their industry, it’s important to keep in mind that you are not the only member of your business organisation with the ability to do certain tasks. Training your team may take time, trust, and resources, it will save your business and your work-life balance in the long run.
The best leaders know how to delegate so they can focus on pushing the business forwards while their team takes care of the day-to-day tasks of the business.
Delegation, when done correctly, is a long-term solution for your business and work-life balance. But to be able to reap the benefits of delegation, it needs to be done right and good delegation comes down to three things: ????, ???, and ???
What to Delegate
Many leaders are praised for doing the work alongside their team. However, there are still only 24 hours in a day, even leaders need to rest for some of them. You can’t do it all, that’s why you need to delegate. But delegation is not simply offloading your responsibilities to your team, you need to train them to the systems and procedures of their tasks.
You can delegate the day-to-day tasks of your business such as administrative tasks, bookkeeping, customer service, and follow-ups, to name a few.
