The Art of Delegation
Delegation can so often be seen as simply giving work down-the-line to others to reduce the pressures above. Whilst delegation is fundamentally about moving duties, tasks and responsibilities around the workforce, it should be so much more than a one way river.
You may have a negative opinion of delegation if you have previously felt like work was dumped on you with little thought, consideration or explanation. When delegation is done badly, working relationships, productivity and engagement can all be damaged as a consequence. But when done well, delegation is a powerful career development tool that can empower and motivate others, build trust in teams and get things done effectively and efficiently.
