Delegation – something that nearly every partner or manager talks about doing, but rarely does well.
How many times have you said to yourself or to one of your team ‘I need to delegate this task’ or ‘I shouldn’t be doing this really, someone else should’?
Yet, you end up doing it – every single time.
Because there is a part of you that believes that no one can do this task as well as you can, or you think it’s quicker to do it yourself than to show someone else.
However, wouldn’t it be great if you could get your people to do a better job than you could do yourself?
Wouldn’t you feel reassured to see your people take more responsibility for results and make your firm less reliant on you?
You may often feel reluctant to delegate, thinking you must do everything yourself if you want it done right…but this common mindset is holding back your firm.
It’s a simple fact that one person can’t do everything…so, bite the bullet, take the risk and share the load.
