Delegating for Results
By Emily A. Sterrett, Ph.D.
Delegating sometimes gets a bad name in organizational circles. Leaders fear losing control when they turn something over to another. Employees who receive delegation from their leader are often left feeling resentful because the leader delegates the assignment so poorly.
When delegating is done properly, however, it has a number of benefits for the manager, the protege, and the organization. Delegation of the right assignments is an ideal way to develop employees and build organizational capacity for the future. Delegation is a skill that every leader at all levels of the organization should learn and practice.
Delegating for Results will teach you why it is to your advantage to master this important leadership skill. It will teach you how to delegate properly so you can be confident of achieving the needed results.
