Delegation is a critical skill for leaders to develop. Some leaders feel that their value is based on their individual knowledge and contribution. This drives them to do much of the critical work themselves. In doing so, they reach a point where they will have to make personal sacrifices to keep up. They become overwhelmed, and it impacts their personal life and wellbeing. If you find yourself in this situation, the solution is straightforward. You must leverage your team and delegate work to them. In doing so, you will be able to scale and get ahead.
In this first of two podcasts, I outline the consequences of failing to delegate appropriately and I detail five benefits of effective delegation.
