While many high-performing leaders believe that “if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself,” successful delegation can produce many rewards and be beneficial to the entire team, according to Job Journey, a blog of Express Employment Professionals.
According to research, some of the biggest positive results of delegation include team members who are nine times more likely to produce innovative and creative outcomes, nine times more likely to have high-performance standards, and twice as likely to go above their job description.
To start delegating, leaders who have a hard time loosening their grip on projects should start small, by choosing a small project where the consequences of a mistake or missing a deadline are not as big.
Next, it is important to set clear expectations. In addition to presenting the big-picture scope of the project and how it will affect the business, it is important to lay out in detail expected outcomes, timelines for completion, and important milestones.
Also, a schedule of communication and priorities needs to be set for the type of challenges or decisions that need to be elevated for higher-level discussion or approval.
