Dealing with a workload that is beyond your means is difficult. One such solution may be to delegate some of that workload to other individuals. Effective delegation can help anyone that’s feeling challenged by time management.
When it is done correctly delegation can be a win-win situation for everyone involved. The benefits associated with delegation are so important for any organisation, leader or team member. We made a note of some that stand out:
Benefits of Delegation
By delegating the tasks that are able to be completed by someone else means that you can spend more time on the more important tasks.
Teamwork is always a good morale booster in an office. By delegating work to a group, will encourage them to work together to reach the end goals.
By delegating work you will create a greater sense of balance among the individuals in the organisations regarding workload. Ensuring that everyone has an equal amount of work to do, rather than one person doing all the heavy lifting.
Other individuals have the opportunity to up skill and become more flexible with what they can and can’t do.
Keeping your team members motivated is important. By delegating work you can keep the motivation levels up as they are being exposed to new and challenging tasks.
Delegation may not be to every leader’s taste; however I believe it is an essential part of a job. Try it and see if it works for you.
