We can’t be superheroes all the time and manage everything at the same time, especially when it comes to overseeing a business or company that you want to grow. Making a business work is all about teamwork and as the saying goes, “there is no I in team.”
Although many managers would love to run the show all by themselves, there is a great probability that an important part of the business would be missed out or neglected because no one’s keeping a close eye on them.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to be in the nitty-gritty of things but an effective manager should also focus on the macro level of the business. He is up there, seeing it as a whole and focused on steering the company in the right direction.
What is the best way to ensure someone’s watching over every aspect of your business?
According to Merriam-Webster, “Delegation is the act of giving control, authority, a job or duty, etc., to another person.”
It may seem like a person is losing power when they give another person the power to take on certain tasks and make decisions for them but it doesn’t. Allowing yourself as the head of the business to give a part of the control to someone else lightens the workload. You won’t need to clog your mind with so much.
Also, you get extra time that could be used to make better decisions for your business.
When tasks are delegated to other people as well, someone concentrates on an aspect of the business. Another keen eye is there to help you make that brand or project better than ever. They will add and suggest ideas that you may have disregarded because of having to think of everything else.
Giving your team assignments also allow them to grow. They not only get to do something but because they are assigned to do a specific task, it becomes their baby and they will do their best to nurture it and make you proud in how they handle it.
Most of all, when tasks are delegated, the company or business becomes productive. As certain tasks are assigned, everything simultaneously moves towards the finish line. Tasks can even get finished all at the same time!
No one needs to juggle at all times, especially managers. All that hassle can only become detrimental for a business.
