It is not possible for us to do everything at our place of work. Hence, delegating work to other team members and our juniors becomes an important and efficient way of working. Productive Delegation is the ability to delegate tasks to our team members in a way that makes it easier for them to understand the task and perform it efficiently.
understand their team’s capabilities. Only if the team is capable of performing the task should it be delegated to them. Effective delegation also means that a leader needs to be able to clearly communicate their expectations and the desired result from the task. When delegating work, a leader needs to give clear timelines and all the information that their team member would need to perform the task efficiently.
Delegation skills require an individual to understand the task and the person they are delegating it to. While delegating tasks, one needs to know the capabilities of the person they are delegating it to and ensure that they explain their expectations clearly.
