Learning to delegate in your job role

Posted on July 31, 2015 at 8:54 am

Certain job roles require you to delegate an amount of your work to other members of staff. Some people find this hard either due to the fact that they do not like to ask someone else to do something or that they feel that the work will not be done correctly if they do delegate it. Often there comes a time during your working life when you realise that if you do not start to delegate work you simply do not have enough hours in the day to manage it all.

The most important thing about delegating is to ensure that you still have an element of control over the situation (at least until you are 100% confident that the job is being done correctly). It may be that you are ultimately responsible for ensuring the task is completed correctly and on time and therefore you need to oversee the work load.

Passing work on to other team members will free up your time to concentrate on the tasks that you should be doing and allow you to excel in your own area of expertise.
