5 Excuses for Not Delegating

  1. It takes too long to train someone else
  2. I can do it quicker myself
  3. I can’t trust someone else with such an important piece of work
  4. Only I can do it
  5. I don’t need to

What else would you add to the list?

6. People will think I’m not on top of my job / that I can’t cope

7. My staff won’t like it / me

Maybe not so much excuses, but (often unspoken) reasons
