Most managers, leaders and staff have one thing in common. They all have a limited amount of time available to them. So what are 3 good reasons for managers to delegate?
Reason 1: You focus on what you should be doing
The alternative is spending lots of time on activities that you should not be doing and may be no-one should be doing.
Reason 2: You are free to take on new challenges
New challenges provide you with the opportunity to grow and develop new skills and gain new experience.
Reason 3: You give your staff the chance to develop
The staff that you manage generally want to grow and develop. By delegating tasks to them, you give them the opportunity to grow and develop.
