Delegation or Passing off your work ?

there is a major difference between letting other people do you work and delegation. Passing off your work means you are not responsible of it anymore. Delegation means that you are now more responsible for the work.

Doing things your self is easy and teaching is difficult. Delegation brings the best of your self, because whenever you are teaching you are more concerned about the quality than ever before. Want to try ? Teach some one driving 😉

During delegating, you have to write down the process and keep on iterating them based on best practices. Never ever expect or force people to do it your way. I recommend that you give them the deliverables and expectation and let them find a way to do it. If they do it better way, you have learnt some thing. If not, you share the way you do it and expected a better result. Delegation is an iterative process and not linear. You delegate, check back improve and then delegate again.

Bottom line. Delegation is teaching people how to perform better than you !

    I like your perspective that delegation is teaching people how to perform better than you !

    My cousin once told me, you can delegate work but you cannot delegate responsibility. Follow up is crucial.

    People have egos. Expectations have to be set. While every one mentions Challenging role, most people are just trying to do 9-5.

Existing without the solutions to the issues you’ve resolved by means of your website is a crucial case, and ones which might have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not encountered your blog. Your actual understanding and kindness in playing with every aspect was useful. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not encountered such a thing like this. I am able to now relish my future.

    One tip : Whenever possible, when delegating work, give the person a whole task to do.
