Tips to Delegate Effectively When Running your Business
When you run your own business and it starts growing, it gets harder to have time to cover all of your business needs, so it is time to start delegating tasks and responsibilities to your team. No matter how big or small your team is, it is important that you trust them and start delegating efficiently so that your business keeps growing.
3 Tips to Help You Delegate Like a Boss!!!
You Can’t Do Everything Yourself
As much as you try, you can’t do everything yourself. Being a boss is a lot like being a parent, you’re nervous when your kids start going off on their own, you wish you could micromanage every aspect of their life, but at some point, you have to trust that you did your job and let the little ones fly. The same goes for your team. You hired them for a reason, now let them do their job.
Give Specific Instructions and Don’t Micromanage
If you have given complete and specific instructions, as well as laid out a time frame and parameters for success, then all you can do is trust that your employee is going to meet your expectations. Don’t micromanage the process. Get a progress report, absolutely, but let each person solve the problem or complete the job in the best way they see fit. It may not be how you would have done it, but as long as it gets done right, and on time, what difference does it make how it got done? Your employee may even have found a better way to do it, just because you’re the boss doesn’t mean you can’t learn from your team. You should all be learning from and supporting each other. Hopefully, you all have the same end goal.
Don’t Forget to Say “Thank You”
Once the job is completed to your satisfaction, make sure you say thank you. The boss that doesn’t think they need to thank their employees for “doing their job” is a boss who has a hard time holding on to quality people. So, say thank you!
