The ability to delegate is one of the most important abilities of a leader.
Without it, leaders get stuck doing everything but leading – which isn’t good for anyone in the company.
But before you delegate here are 4 questions that are helpful to ask yourself:
- Do they have the skill set?
- Have you trained them and given them a clear expectation of what you want?
- Have you given them the tools they need to do the job?
- Have you given them a realistic and specific deadline to complete it?
By answering these questions first, you might just save yourself a headache or two.
