One of the areas which many of the people I work with want to develop is their delegation skills. From what I can see this is really important, for example to help them find more time to develop their teams. This allows them more time to work on rather than just work in the business. Therefore consider the following questions:
- What importance do you personally place on delegation in your business?
- What are you doing to coach your direct reports how to delegate better?
- What are you doing to ensure that tasks and objectives are delegated down to the lowest appropriate level in the organisation?
If you don’t have ready answers to all of these questions at then you should spend some time reflecting on these?
