What Managers Should Delegate
When managing a business Unit, the manager’s primary role is to get results through effectively delegating work and managing others. Getting important things done through others is, in essence, a core component of a manager’s job. Don’t get carried away! Most of the critical responsibilities of the manager can not be delegated. You can delegate assignments that add to the your ability to execute their assignments but not the responsibilities themselves. Also, don’t delegate what you don’t like to do if it is part of your core responsibilities.
3 Keys to Delegating the Right Assignments
- Is the task something that your manager would expect your to do yourself?
- Is it something you don’t like to do but should be doing yourself?
- Is the task being delegated mission critical?
Make good choices.
