The art of entrusting responsibility to others and achieving desired outcomes
The primary job of a leader is to ensure work is done on time and in excellence. Often leaders choose to hang on to all tasks as they fear no one else can do it right and on time or believe they don’t have time to delegate. This creates stress and work overload – sometimes burnout. Thus, by delegating and entrusting others, leaders can accomplish work effectively and efficiently though others by sharing the workload. The benefits include time spent wisely, lower stress, and increased trust and engagement.
